Pros

Opportunity to work for one of the largest retailers in the world. Lots of room for career advancement and challenge if you can navigate the politics and culture.

Cons

Competitive to the point of cutthroat at times. Many people build their career/resume here but leave after a few years because they are burnt out.

Advice to Management

Continue on the path of focusing on the customer but get rid of the leaders who reinforce the cutthroat politics vs focusing on performance and development of their teams.

    Pros

    Pay for the area is okay. Benefits are great compared to other opportunities avaiable. A great job to work while you are going to college.

    Cons

    If you aren't full time you are scheduled 0-39 hours a week. You will have to work most weekends. Days off aren't usually back to back. If you are scheduled 40 hours you might have tuesday and thursday off.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees fairly, understanding that thier work isn't thier life and that everyone has family beyond the orange box, and they will work harder for you.

    Pros

    The people you work with are the best thing about the company. Its a very friendly culture.

    Cons

    It always seems to be understaffed. i always feel like i there is a ton of work to do.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of getting all parts of the company on the same page. i am on met and it seems as if the regular associates have no clue what we do or what our responsibilities are, and vice versa. there are department heads that i talk to that seem to have no clue what i do or what is going on in their department.
