I have been working at Orchard Supply Hardware part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great people to work with. Flexible hours and understanding of emergencies.

Cons

Low pay for the amount of work that they expect you to do.

Advice to Management

Stop pushing club orchard sign ups. Members of this program believe it is a waste of time, and those that are not members get mad at the cashiers for constantly asking to join. There needs to be a better incentive to convince people to join, many customer do not see the point in joining when they get nothing out of it until later in time.

    I worked at Orchard Supply Hardware part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Getting perspective on why you never want to work in retail again and why getting more education can be worthwhile in avoiding mind numbing work in the future. It can also help you with customer interactions in later jobs as customers in retail are often the worst and it is important to learn how to keep your cool. It is possible to learn a lot in retail in terms of management and attitude, but the soul crushing nature of the work makes it quite difficult.

    Cons

    Little to no training leading to customer frustration and poor work experience. Can lead to apathy, a general disdain of large populations, and a poor attitude after too many hours of a poor working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Give even minimal training to new hires. For example, have all employees have a basic knowledge of where products are located within the store.

    I worked at Orchard Supply Hardware part-time

    Pros

    Not much to say here. It's a job. During the summer months they used to give plenty of hours. Very little secondary expectations if you're the type that's afraid of a little work.

    Cons

    Minimum wage. Worst corporate morale I've ever had the misfortune of experiencing. Absolutely zero opportunity for advancement. They'll try to work you over if you're not familiar with employment laws.

    Advice to Management

    You baked your cake and now you get to eat it. It's unfortunate that you couldn't see the error of your ways until it was too late.
