Pros

Decent pay, very good bonus and commission opportunities, every 4th weekend off, set rotation. Good opportunities to advance. Clean stores. Often a fun place to be.

Cons

It's retail. There are going to be customers who look down on you, no matter how good you are. Although there is a set rotation, you're still working three different shifts in a week so consistency is always an issue.

Advice to Management

We need to have a better selection in some of the stores. Our store is missing many items they have at stores in the same town like outswing doors, wooden windows and certain lumber. Listen better. Give more feedback on how individuals are doing, not just the departments or the store.

    Pros

    pay is above average for retail, benefits are great, pay raises, quarterly bonus opportunities, and decent commission rate for special orders.

    Cons

    very hard work & heavy lifting, lots of hours, frequent last minute scheduling changes, high turnover and call-ins.

    Advice to Management

    Cross-train in all departments, I would often know more than my managers and would make it hard to fully respect someone that needed more help than some of the employees.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are really close and a good amount of paid time off.

    Cons

    If you are a woman your chances of promotion are pretty slim and your only way to get promoted is by being friends with your managers.

    Advice to Management

    The management team is inconsistent and uses favoritism.
