great pay; amazing benefits; company culture is strong. Although it is a worldwide company, you feel like a family; vacation/sick time off is great- having been with the company many years I get 5 weeks of PTO and a week a sick time; The building itself is a major benefit- lockers & showers, computer rooms, quiet/prayer room, coworker-only restaurant that serves a different meal each day for only $3, some locations have gyms and free bicycles to rent, lactation rooms for new moms, etc...; If you have the drive and ambition to do so, you can work your way up quickly as this company mostly hires from within and values experience and qualities over a degree.
Its retail, therefore sometimes it really sucks. It is very fast-paced and there is a lot of pressure to work at maximum productivity seemingly all the time. With the current structure, there is too much responsibility and tasks put on each department and when one person doesnt do their given task it becomes a domino effect easily making it difficult to hold people accountable when multiple people cannot do their job to the fullest because the preceding coworker could not do their job to the fullest and so on.

+Pay: Minimum pay was raised to 15$ company wide which is both a pro and con; lower level employees saw a decent bump while higher level employees saw next to nothing +Culture/Values: Very inclusive, understanding and accommodating to personal and medical issues +Benefits: Great medical/dental/vision, lengthy vacation/sick time, LoA's available for medical or personal reasons, Christmas gifts, HL2's eligible for certain benefits, possible year end bonus (company-wide performance based)
+Pay: I know I put this twice but it's a double edged sword - it seems good at first until you realize you're often working way harder than what they're paying you to do (management issues) +Management: Honestly awful. Managers spend most of their time talking about work rather than doing anything, either in meetings or at their desks. When they do hit the floor it's to give contradictory input on how to do your job before disappearing again. Far too many cooks in this kitchen and none of them know how to cook +Minimal growth: Hard to move past regular co-worker status +Unstable: Company likes to restructure a lot which often results in employees leaving or losing their job +Scheduling: Very few positions have a set schedule meaning you're at the whim of management each weekContinue reading
