Pros

The discount! And the commission based sales. Also, there is a ton of upward mobility possible, if you want it and work hard enough! Its rated one of the best companies to work for, and after working there for years, it seems to be just that!

Cons

The returns. They will sometimes kill your paycheck. Its also frustrating having to take back fraudulent returns when you know it was stolen, and over time, that will turn you bitter. Also, working nights and weekends and the amount of time spent during holiday season makes it hard for those with family to fufill obligations. Another big problem-when you are management, you don't get paid overtime, even when the expectation is 12 hour shifts during sale.

Advice to Management

Stop taking back fake returns!! And pay overtime!!!!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Large corporation still run like a small store - great benefit package adds a lot to peace of mind. Same benefits for all levels of the organization. Still believes in promoting from within

    Cons

    Politics, politics, politics & age discrimination is rappant. You have to be young and a game player/ass kisser to get ahead. Talent and strong work ethic will not take you as far.

    Advice to Management

    Favoritism & mixed messages don't do anyone any good
