Current Employee - Warehouse in West Jefferson, OH
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Work is not that hard
Easy to get overlooked in the mass confussion
Pay is inline or better than their low end competition
Always hiring

Cons

Employees opinions don't matter and sugestions are frowned upon.
Safety is not a consideration and real trainning is not provided, mostly learn as you go.
No common sense to logistics or problem solving
Time on the job is viewed as more important than the workers ability or education.
Managers are neither skilled nor experienced at what they do leading to a lot of confusion.
Products are all foreign made and of dubious quality. Might explaing the return policy Restoration Hardware uses.
Lots of finger pointing and blame to go around.
The numbers are ALL important, even if they are inaccurate or missrepresentative of the real situation.
Temporary workers are over used and given NO incentives to try harder.
Every man for himself attitude amungst many employees due to missmanaged task asignments.
Outdated computer system, 30 year old software being used to track stock.
Accidents are not correctly reported and vehicular traffic and foot traffic share many common areas leading to increased risk of being hurt. Employees who do get hurt are most often fired.

Advice to Management

Actions speak louder than words. Saying one thing and doing another leads to an atmosphere of distrust and disbelief.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Flexible hours
    - Most of the associates are great to work with
    - Most customers are decent and very grateful for your efforts

    Cons

    - Merchandise that is almost always produced in China
    - Constant reciting of "Values" that lead me to believe they are simply non-existent

    Advice to Management

    - Hire within and promote talent
    - Value your associates more, I mean really, who really rakes in the sales?
    - Get new point of sale systems (It's not 1998!)
