    Pros

    You get to meet new people that can help with any questions you may have which will make you more comfortable here at Curacao.

    Cons

    Cons to working at Curacao would have to be having to deal with impolite customer because you are just doing your job and have an impolite customer yell at times for something you don't have control over but I understand that is bound to happen because not every customer is perfect.

    Advice to Management

    Advice I would have management get to know their employees in their own departments.

    Pros

    Very Friendly and Welcoming Environment. Love that is one of the few stores that I know about that offers a kids area for the children to stay while the parents go on and take care of their shopping or payments. One store that offers an opportunity for our Hispanic community to finance their needs, like appliances and furniture, electronics and much more.

    Cons

    nothing negative, except maybe sometimes it does get a little crowded at the check out lines.

    Advice to Management

    GREAT JOB!!!

    I worked at Curacao full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company auto-enrolls employees in 401k plan. Medical & Dental plans better than most. Employee discount very good . Coworkers are awesome and care about customers.

    Cons

    Bonuses virtually impossible to achieve. Bonus goals often change mid month. Interest rate charged to customers excessive 34% to 39% , like a loan shark

    Advice to Management

    Most companies have a structured employee development system for retail employees. Team leaders need a mentoring program.
