    I worked at Cost Plus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They seem to take care of the people that make the products and the company is doing really well financially. Great customers, great products, wide range, good deals.

    Cons

    Management is all about their own growth and there is a lot of talking behind everyone's back. By far one of the most unprofessional places I have ever worked. I was appalled, my gm would say one thing and do another. I witnessed theft and drinking on the job, but nothing was ever done about it. If you were not willing to brown nose and trash talk you were not in the inner circle. Very clicky.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time with supervisors and captains. Ask them what's really going on.
    Look at day to day activity, rely on secret shoppers more. Realize if someone is brown nosing, they usually are hiding something. Hint: my GM was "intimate" with District Manager, oh that's why the promotion was so smooth. I left the company, but still shop there. If the turnover is consistent it's usually a red flag..
