I worked at Home Goods full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Job is fairly easy once you get it, hours are decent, and benefits for full-timers are good. Also, not having to work Easter, or Christmas was nice as the store was closed.

Cons

Getting promoted is a lengthy process, the full time staff in most locations hold on to their position for dear life. Management does not do a good job of following up with people who don't do their job well or don't follow rules but will punish those who constantly do well in an effort to "make an example". Also the fact that full time employees are required to have open availability is ridiculous mostly because you're only giving a minimum of 30 hours and it barely goes up from there. If they need to be flexible the company should at least give 40 hours clean.

Advice to Management

Management should really consider promoting store management from within instead of hiring from other companies. Theres too many different styles of management all over the stores it makes it very confusing for associates to work and creates huge communication issues.

    I worked at Home Goods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not much, they give a 45 minute break IF you work 6 hours, a lot of the time they will give you 5.95 hours just so they don't have to give you a break, one of the managers has punched an employee in and out too earlier than he worked just so he didn't have 40 hours that week.

    Cons

    Almost everything, they don't care about their employees and always say they don't have enough pay roll to give hours to their staff, people quit right away because there's not enough help. They don't pay more than 11 an hour in Illinois "supposedly" at least that's what the managers tell everyone even if you've been with the company for years, and it's a struggle to give a decent raise.
