Pros

You gain a great deal of product knowledge and sales experience. The company at its highest levels is well managed and debt free.

You can pretty much expect to be thrown under the bus by management in my experience

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The customer service skills you gain while working there are phenomenal. I gained the skills necessary to move on to a better company.

    Cons

    Management is very sarcastic and uncompassionate. They do not care if your 4 year old daughter has a fever of 104 and needs to be in the hospital. They don't help you complete your job when you're overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    Train your keyholders better to be more professional and not speak about EVERY employee behind their backs.

    "Great pay, little incentives to work hard or drive the business. Perfect for clock watchers"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Re: Corporate Office in Union New Jersey
    Great Pay for the Expectations
    Highly Stable Company
    Good Work Hours
    Good Family Life Balance
    Company is growing and performing well financially
    Stock vesting over 5 years is great incentive, and with the company growth is a great retention tool
    One of the few retail employers in the area
    Decentralized model is great - rarely do you see stores getting this much ownership

    Cons

    Little to none HR - well below standard training, development, recruiting, career advancement promotion, termination processes. This is a $9B company
    Talent level low. Executives not well seasoned though top merchants are strong
    Minimal opportunity to try different functions/get promoted. No internal job board
    CEO and company management rarely communicate with employees. Never saw the CEO once
    Hard to have ownership as a corporate employee with decentralized stores
    No corporate giving and ethics violations? - "encourages" suppliers to donate to chosen charities
    Does not pay for any type of further education for employees - most pharma companies do in NJ

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees right, they will deliver so much more than can help drive the business over the long term. It will also impact your retention
