    Employee discount, flexible hours, good coworkers

    Hours are very tight. Losing benefits for part time workers.

    DM should spend more than 4 hours a month in the store and listen to entire staff not just a few select staff.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great work environment and experience.

    Cons

    Need better training program and they do not have a very good discount for employees. Sales prices are often lower than employee discount.

    Advice to Management

    Set up an online training program and managers need to be more flexible in schedule changes. Employees should have more input in where they work within the store. An older woman does not do well in the receiving room.
