Pros

To see the joy on childrens faces when they get the toy they want, especially after seeing so many toys all around.

Cons

When you are not in season, there are less hours and the job is even more demanding, I was putting in at least 60 hours a week on salary. I would say it was below minimum wage.

Advice to Management

Work with those who are willing to grow with the company and help them. The wrong communication sometimes goes out to the wrong people.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Offer competitive starting wage. Friendly and helpful co-workers. Fun work atmosphere. Helpful department supervisors. Good for part-time or seasonal work.

    Cons

    Don't expect store managers or assistant managers to care much about you. They preach open door policies and talk about their desire to work with you, but when it comes time to act, they fall short. Managers and supervisors play favorites with certain employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start practicing what you preach. Actually listen to your employees (and no, going over the results of the internal survey and saying that the results were skewed, then patting yourself on the back doesn't count). Stop changing the way everything is done without feedback from actual employees.

    Pros

    Overall a pleasant work environment.
    Generally a 9 to 5:30 work day
    Work life balance is generally good
    Senior Leaders do give regualr business updates.

    Cons

    IT systems are antiquated, which makes getting data difficult or very time consuming. More time is spent gathering/querying data than actual analysis.

    The size of the organization makes it difficult to implement change; or get compliance by other groups.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in better IT systems, or you won't attract top tier talent!
