      Pros

      There are a lot of ways to be promoted Management is fair if you are following protocol Breaks and lunches are dispersed fairly VERY inclusive to all minorities and sexualities - more so than any other retail joint out there, I’ve had an LGBT manager at every store I’ve been in

      Cons

      Part timers won’t get close to 40 hours, and if there is ever a reason to, the hours will be cut Full timers will be worked to the bone conversely, sometimes over worked depending on how many people are currently employed Managers are having trouble hiring, perhaps due to COVID now, but even before COVID they struggled to maintain and hire - not an issue for part timers, but bad for full timers And lastly, but not just a problem with FL but retail as a whole, no wiggle room for raises, margins are just to low as it is but it’s especially bad at FL

      Pros

      Opportunity to promote quickly from within, as long as you are a hard worker and are willing to move stores.

      Cons

      Hourly Pay rates are not consistent with cross-industry compensation statistics, it only aligns when comparing exempt positions. No bonuses profit sharing or otherwise, dated inventory tracking and ordering systems, lack of appropriate quantities of job essential tools such as scan guns, box cutters, uniforms, fixtures, etc

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      As long as you can stand and walk for at least an 8-hour shift and you can communicate effectively, this job is a challenging breeze. You will be paid for training.

      Cons

      Work is time-sensitive. If you do not meet your manager's expectations, you WILL be hearing about it. It will be a professional exchange of words.

      Pros

      flexible schedule. easy to request certain days off. updated schedule system. scheduling ap is very good and easy to use.

      Cons

      management is inconsistent. deliveries don't have a set time schedule, which affects multiple things like labor, planning, etc. communication is horrendous, why is it so hard for people to be up-front with people. it does not have to be this complicated

      Pros

      I love working with the people I work with. Nice time off Works with your needs

      Cons

      I don’t like the company. The higher ups. The big wigs. They are smartaholes, expect too much and have lost touch with what it’s like to actually do the work. They are in the customers side, not the employee. Luckily management in the store understand but when it comes to the corporate they don’t give a crap about you.
