Pros

Co-workers are friendly and help you to settle in to your job.
There are opportunities for advancement should retail be the career of choice.
They do promote from within the company and the retail outfit first before seeking elsewhere.

Cons

It can be very stressful especially in busy seasons such as Christmas.
They tend to slash your hours after Christmas and raises are very small.

Advice to Management

Treat your long standing staff with respect and value their input more they may know more then you think about what their customers are wanting.
We have only been owned and run a short time by the current owner/s and top management so its really hard to comment on that. I have noticed a difference for the better but there is room for improvement.

    The discount policy, associate buying club and ability to transfer to other locations fairly easily. Work isn't terribly hard.

    2. Credit blend and credit card referrals are the only thing management cares about.
    3. Very little opportunity for advancement or recognition.
    4. Almost no feedback from supervisors or management.

    Give incentives to non-cash employees, improve health and safety awareness, train new employees, ensure there are opportunities for raises, review performance regularly and give feedback.
