Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The discount is fairly good in comparison to most places.

Cons

Very low pay for hard work
They expect too much and continue to ask for too much of you
Kept late after closing to clean store. I was there some nights until 12 or 1 am.
Often take advantage of your strengths and only point out your flaws
Treat associates as if they're replaceable.

Advice to Management

Recognize the talent within your stores instead of constantly pointing out how much "better" they could be.

    Pros

    Great people.
    Great employee discount.
    If you consistently do well in sales, they promote quickly/

    Cons

    Inability to honor time conflicts with shceduling when manager was warned of such issues weeks ahead of time.
    Some sales associates really needed the hours, and the manager refused to give anyone more than 10-15 hours per week. Some only got 5, and there was this weird on-call thing they did. Basically they would put on your schedule for ex: Friday ON-CALL '2PM-8PM'. Which means that they may or may not call you to come in, and you can't make any other plans because they may call you at any time to come in.
    Sometimes, they wouldn't schedule enough people during peak hours, resulting in an increase of theft, a very messy store, and dissatisfied customers.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your associates. If you are not going to give enough hours to good workers, then do not hire so many people. Especially if you are not going to schedule enough of them during peak hours.

    Pros

    The name brand is the best catch
    The music pumps you up

    Cons

    If you have the wrong DM, you will be a failure. Dont listen to them if you know better.

    Advice to Management

    In the Atlanta market its the worst. They dont believe in pushing associates . The direction from the DMs are inconsistent and two faced. When things go bad, even though its DM advice,they retract their verbal direction...at the wrong time and make it look like it was your idea.
