Former Employee - Cashier/Floor Sales in Valencia, CA
Former Employee - Cashier/Floor Sales in Valencia, CA
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Awesome co-workers
Nice customers
Good Discount (40 percent)
Assistant manager was pretty cool
The hours and days I requested were usually the hours and days I got

Cons

District manager was a thorn in the store's side
No opportunity to promote upward, left after three years for assistant manager at another chain

Advice to Management

Start promoting from within. I busted my butt in TWO locations (a NorCal location before transferring to Valencia) and worked at those stores for over three years combined, never once did I nor anyone else working at the store get promoted.

    Pros

    It would have to be the people that are in the company. In addition the relationships between stores is great. Also the company has all the latest technology. For the most part the DSM's let store management do their jobs. Also the product was great, and of a high quaility.

    Cons

    The lack of advancement opportunities. Also there was a real problem with un-clear expectations. Also the pay was not up to the industry standard. This would have to be my biggest complaint. Assistant managers were only paid on aveage between 10-12 dollars per hour. The average store manager was paid in the 14.50-20 dollar per hour range.

    Advice to Management

    Get a strong promotion plan in place so that hard working employees can move up through the ranks.
