I have been working at HomeGoods full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I absolutely love my fellow coordinators! I've worked at 3 different Home Goods and each one has had such a wide range of diverse and friendly staff. My home store in CA has the best management ever. Very accommodating and wiling to work with you. They offer full time and part time and are very accommodating to your schedule. This company is doing very well so you can be sure they'll be in business for many years to come! They also have a ton of locations (and they're constantly opening new stores everywhere) and because they're also part of TJMax and Marshall's it gives you lots of opportunities to transfer should you need to.

Cons

Pay. Compared to a lot of other places the pay is o.k. Also, if you're working at one of the higher volume stores you definitely don't get paid enough for all the different types of work you do. You also only get 30 hours a week as a full time employee.

Advice to Management

Please look out for your hard working employees. I've seen so many amazing people who truly care and are fabulous workers leave feeling unappreciated. I believe this is a good company but unfortunately a lot of issues are getting overlooked.

    Pros

    -Great coworkers, have made friends here
    -Management is helpful and listens to feedback
    -Schedule is flexible, they work with your availability
    -Always something to do, never bored
    -Never have to work too late, we close at 9:30pm and are usually out by 10:00
    -Yearly raises, not huge increases in pay but a considerable amount
    -Paid weekly
    -Parties are thrown often for good customer feedback and reaching sales goals
    -Promote from within the company

    Cons

    -Store manager is hardly there which is both good and bad. Employees prefer the assistant managers. They are much nicer/laid back.
    -Not paid enough for the amount of work they expect of you
    -Customers continuously wreck the store and ask for discounts on most merchandise
    -Full time isn't really full time. I usually accumulate about 32-37 hours a week
    -Part time employees come and go, people tend to not stick around
    -Store manager and assistant managers do not communicate very well to one another
    -Push store credit cards

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees feel as comfortable with store managers as they do the assistant managers. I understand that someone of more authority is going to be a little more intimidating, but being belittled and talked down to by your employer is unacceptable.
