Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The customers are always right, and the company does not say no to anyone for any reason. It works!

Cons

Asked to push Fine china to bridal couples, or other items they dont want. HR dept. unapproachable unless you "drink the kool-aid" and keep your mouth shut. Resistant to new ideas that are proven to be successful in other companies, and only negative comments/remarks from upper management during visits.

Advice to Management

Get a clue. You allow lazy, incompatent people to stay, and get rid of the hard workers because they pose a threat to the store manager. Your Minn. Human Resources Lead does not listen- it is her way or the highway. After 26 people leaving a small store in less than a year, you would think you might look a little deeper into the problem.......... maybe the manager?

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    good pay if you nego. when your hired. Advancement is there if you are willing to give up alot of a family life.

    Cons

    Long hours and the company is pretty open that they will always point out flaws and what didnt get done then ever to compliment a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Your managers are the ones that are running your company. Managers need to feel appreciated and feel that hard work is noticed. Advancing individuals to a higher position just because the beginning salary was to high

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Work well with school schedule
    Team work is great

    Cons

    If you are cannot multitask, then this place might be a bit overwhelming.
    Expect you to finish tasks in a short time period
    If you are not full time be expected to work weekends
    Can be overwhelming if you are the only one working in a particular section: for example, if you are working on the soft side of the store with a phone call and needed for back up cashier and have multiple costumers waiting for help. Can be a bit stressful, but does not happen often.

    Advice to Management

    Allow time for tasks to be completed.
