No opinion of CEO

Pros

You make a lot of friends, the relationships you will establish with most of the people you work with will most likely be positive. And on the weekends we are pretty busy so there is always something to do.

Cons

There is always drama. Though your immediate supervisor will most likely be a pleasant person, the high ups are pretty tough to deal with. They are very much about saving their own butts and are willing to throw anyone under the bus that does not help them get what they want and need or anyone that does not help them keep their upper management off their backs. They are all about making the sales goal for the day, being the best over other stores, there is not even a tiny interest in establishing a minimal interpersonal relationship with employees. And HR is nonexistent!

Advice to Management

Learn some interpersonal skills as well as the proper way to communicate with your employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    8 hour shifts for full time
    Starting Pay is not bad compared to other retailers

    Cons

    The company just took the drive away from the sales staff when they eliminated commissions
    Work an erratic schedule, the store is open for long hours
    Only one weekend off a month, which can be taken from you

    Advice to Management

    Bring back incentives for sales persons. Store level management needs to know how to motivate sales people, they are not the same as regular customer service associates.
