    Pros

    Building a great team and enjoying the friendships you make with associates and customers. In my experience i'm glad that somebody actually hired me with absolutely no experience and I've learned so much there. I started out in stock and moved to cashiering, cash office, and frontend. i then had the opportunity for a promotion and became FES then an area supervisor. I understand everyone has mixed feelings about their management team but i love my team and how much we've improved over the years. We lacked in communication but we've worked on that and have a completely different team. I've seen people come and go, good and bad attitudes but if you don't know how to control your emotions this isn't the place for you. I am a great respectful supervisor and anyone can come to me when they have questions. Glad to have a great team like mine and happy that i have another opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    I feel like i don't get as much recognition as i should from higher management, glad my associates let me know i'm doing a great job. Some expectations are a little too high i don't understand why i have to speak to something as a ASM point of view when my ASM barely knows it and can't speak to it himself. The type of client's we attract aren't always the best and don't always respect us. Hate that we are sometimes short staffed because we have to save payroll. Just wish people wouldn't treat us as a flea market.

    Advice to Management

    let your team know they are doing a great job don't let every visit be negative!!

    I have been working at dd's DISCOUNTS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are very good (medical, vacation etc.)
    Really flexible about taking vacation time off.
    Casual dress code ("Denim Days" are Mondays and Fridays)
    They might be flexible about the length of your workday....if you are a parent.

    Cons

    Extremely corporate and rigid. Dishonest middle management gives you the runaround when you ask questions about your career trajectory. Very political in decisions regarding raises and promotions. Management approval is required for even minor decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Respond to concerns with REAL, honest answers -- not canned, predetermined HR replies.
