Disapproves of CEO

Pros

In the commercial department you are left on your own most of the time. No product to deal with, only customers.

Cons

Making ridiculous amount of phone calls from their call list which is totally a waste of time.
They do not appreciate the hard work you do. They promise bonuses that never materialize.

Advice to Management

Appreciate your hard workers. Every one is so afraid of getting fired, nothing gets done.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    great campus, HR has shown substantial improvement in last 2yrs, IT training weak, although some improvement recently; great parking and great location; good CIO

    Cons

    salaries relatively low, benefits not good; IT management inconsistent; some good, some not; IT tools hard to get in some areas

    Advice to Management

    Continue customer focus and pride in quality of stores physical layout. Some Directors in IT are perhaps decent project leaders, but far to much into micromanagement. Some out only for themselves

    Current Employee - Customer Service Associate in Longmont, CO
    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    - Lots of knowledge shared by many of the older employees
    - Mostly friendly work environment, most co-workers are good people
    - Benefits are very good, matched 401k is great considering its offered to all (even part time) employees

    Cons

    - Business is very slow in the colder months, expect to do a lot of busywork on bad weather days
    - While about half the managers are good people, I feel like the higher ranking the manager, the more they are only concerned about themselves.
    - Pay could be much better. Many of us feel we are worth a lot more.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate better with your people. My biggest issue with this company is the fact that I feel like most managers are looking out for only themselves. I have worked for the company for three years, the district manager has visited our store hundreds of times in the last three years and he shook my hand for the first time about a month ago! People make the company!!! especially in retail!! Treat the folks on the bottom of the totem pole better and you will probably be surprised at how much things could improve.
