Pros

The manager is a sweetie and she's willing to help in any way she can.

Cons

My first week of working I had other engagements and was placed on call. When I did call in to see if they needed me it felt like the other managers didn't want me to work unless the Store Manager was there.

Advice to Management

Don't be intimidated about new hires. Do your job correctly and you won't have to worry about someone taking your job. Take your noses out the air and take a hint from the new store manager.

    Pros

    You do receive great discounts and get guidance on a daily basis. Some tasks were repetitive and allowed me, as a sales lead, to learn the system faster.

    Cons

    As a sales lead, I was expected to do all the work of a store manager and learn how to do extensive financials within a period of three months. When I did have questions, or needed clarification, it seemed as if I was being irritating and bothersome for the leaders. Not helpful, when learning a whole new system.

    Advice to Management

    Allow sales lead to learn independently as well as with a team and with the store managers. Also, do not expect a great store manager at 9.00/hour. Most people cannot live off of this salary.

    Pros

    Work-life balance within my department is very fair. Whenever I have needed time off to take care of my personal needs I was accommodated and I do the same for my staff. I've been here a few years and my work was rewarded with an unexpected promotion. I was made to feel needed and competent.

    Cons

    Working with other departments can be challenging as some people put no importance on your projects or withhold information that may be relevant. We are all working towards the same goal, why can't we mutually cooperate? It's not us against you.
