    Pros

    Fosters a creative and entrepreneurial spirit
    Empowers individuals in a supportive team environment.
    Respects and implements ideas from all levels
    Very diverse employee and customer base
    Nimble company means there is never a dull moment.
    Fun stores

    Cons

    You can probably make a little more money at a bigger company in a similar position.
    If your expectation is that achieving management level means you just tell other people what to do, you will not last long. Cost Plus runs fairly lean and maintains a relatively flat organizational structure. That means everyone is going to roll up their sleeves.
    Being part of a nimble and entrepreneurial company is exciting, however, you need to be very comfortable with change. If you want to know what to expect every day, this is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Too many people still don't know we exist. Many others have a very narrow and often inaccurate idea of who we are and what we offer. To know us is to love us. Let's get the word out!

    Pros

    They give a hefty employee discount (30%) and full-time hourly employees get vacation and benefits after 3 months. I've worked there four months and already have 15 hours of vacation/holiday that I can use at anytime

    Cons

    The pay is not great for the amount of the workload. The communication consists of aprinting emails and signing to verify that you've read it.

    Advice to Management

    You could work on increasing the pay for employees. Esp. when hours ar cut and its expected for 2-3 people to operate the store all day
