    I have been working at Cost Plus part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cost Plus is a very easy job whether your working as a stock associate, floor associate or management. If you can deal will the occasional snobby customer then you can handle the job. I'd say that's the only pro though.

    Cons

    - The POS systems and inventory systems are verrrry outdated. Since the BBB takeover they have updated a few things like paging and phones.
    - There is a lack of communication throughout the whole company. It's hard and near impossible to find one solid answer to anything. Everyone seems to have there own special answer which makes it hard to keep things consistent.
    - NO TRAINING.

    Advice to Management

    implement a training program and get everyone one the same page
