I worked at Kirkland's full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

It's a fun place to work and some of the people are great to be around, and in most cases it is a laid back company to work for.

Cons

Not enough time to finish anything. Little compensation for all the work that is put in, and management is told when they can and can't be off.

Advice to Management

Let the store managers run the store, there is to much hand holding which makes it hard for someone in charge to be able to get a job done. Let the sales stay for a week and not change them every other day.
