    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Co-workers for the most part are friendly and really tight knit. We learn a lot from eachother and respect eachother enough to work as a good team. With the right store manager, you can learn the ropes of retail at OSH.

    Cons

    Lowest pay in the industry. There is little or no chance of promotion or of a raise. It's a good job while your in school if you've got a grant. It's a really bad position if it's your main source of income, you won't survive on OSH pay. Also, the upper management expect more than what your pay would warrant at any other retailer. The ratio between work and pay isn't balanced fairly.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better! and some retail strategies may look good on paper, but they don't necessarily work in practice. Advice to management is to really start listening to your employees and either pay them more or give them less responsibilities.

    Pros

    company discount of 20%, but then again when prices are hiked up so much what is the true savings here?

    Cons

    no real benefits and the shortest schedule of holidays
    no respect for employees and their families for time off
    such a shame that this is a Califonia company because it certainly does not act professional emough to be one

    Advice to Management

    karma...what goes around comes around...just watch the stock price
