Approves of CEO

Pros

I wasn't expecting to feel as if I'm a part of not only a great store team, but a family. My managers are all nice and very encouraging. The discount is great, I love the gratis' we get, and being able to know when the newest products are coming out before the public so I can answer questions. The stock/back room is clean, organized, and all employees work hard to keep it that way. Flexible hours, overall great place!

Cons

The on calls, not being able to use discount online, brand guides are very difficult.

Advice to Management

Don't forget about the little people. Store managers and other managers aren't the only people who make a great store what it is.

    Pros

    Terrific benefits package
    good 401K plan
    were well treated if you were a "favorite"
    good training opportunities for mid level management
    good employee discount

    Cons

    had to work hard to have upper level management recognize team members
    a distinct line between the "cool" managers and "uncool" - very juvenile management culture
    employees were belittled behind closed doors
    assumptions were made about peoples' worth and work volume based on arbitrary numbers
    ideas funneled up to upper level management were not considered until they "became" the manager's or director's ideas
    many of the managers/supervisors were under educated. Some lied on their resumes to get positions and "favorites" were often played for promotions
    Some upper level management members were extremely egotistical

    Advice to Management

    Value ALL the people who work for you, not just the ones you like personally.
