    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Developed Family atmosphere with coworkers
    Sometimes it can be a fun job
    flexible scheduling as long as you give notice
    good employee discount

    Cons

    No room for advancement (took me 4 years to be promoted to a supervisor)
    Poor raise system
    Unrealistic expectations set by corporate
    Little to no recognition for work completed
    Very inefficient overall
    Unrealistic customer service model
    No holiday pay for working holidays ie: 4th of july, labor day, etc for part time employees

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to take advice from senior employees and management on projects. they have no grasp of how everything works inside the store and when you try to explain that to them they will hear no part of it and this causes a lot of time wasted when a project is completed and they want to change it because it doesn't work. Just overall a very inefficient company.
