Pros

Above market pay, good benefits.

Cons

Very common to see unqualified associates get promoted to manager/director level positions. That's were relationships come into play. Advancement is more about who you know vs. how competent / qualified you are.
Extremely poor feedback for internal interviews.

Advice to Management

Be fair when promoting associates. Value their education, previous work experience, and capacity vs. if they know how to do one specific job function.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great working environment. My fellow associates are great people to work with. The benefits are good as you only need to be part time to receive heath insurance and vacation time.

    Cons

    Low pay for the work you do. Customers are demanding and expect you to know everything about the items in the store and give them the answers immediately.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay starting pay for all associates. After a probation period, give another raise based on merit and experience. 9 bucks an hour in Hawaii is at the poverty level.
