Pros

employee discount
you wear many different hats therefore learn a lot

Cons

they expect far too much from their employees. helping customers, putting away stock, price changes, merchandising, setting sales, and associates are pay for performance. If you stand behind the register and do nothing else you get pay increases. If you do all of the other necessary work but don't have a high sph they actually take money away from you at review time. most employees working there on average of 5 years are actually being paid less now than they were then. $8 or $9 an hour when their starting rate was 11. I have never seen any retail company expect so much from their employees.

Advice to Management

You need to reacess your pay scale. it is archaic.

    Pros

    The work is pretty easy to do. Good part time job or college opportunity. I would say if you are looking to move up in the retail world they may provide some good long term opporunity. The people are very nice. The manangement team does a good job of treaitng you well and making you feel pretty welcomed at all times.

    Cons

    The hours suck. If you are looking ofr weekends (as all retial) beware. Long long hours. Of course you won't get your holidays off. The rules do tend to change sometimes. Also I feel like the standards may differ from other retail stores.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    The benefits are great , meeting people.

    Cons

    Pay rates of various positions extremely off!!!

    Advice to Management

    REALLY take a look at what the store managers DO?
    Help the associates feel like part of a team and give them just a little pat on the back or incentive for improving.
