    I have been working at Forman Mills full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the staff are great to work with. Good for students if this is your first job.

    Cons

    Not enough of training for the associates. Long hours if your on the closing shift.
    Customer can be nasty, always wanting more of a discount. Was ready to quit 3 months after I started. Hours never the same from week to week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism. Know how to talk to your staff. Schedule your staff equally. Show a good example at all times

    I worked at Forman Mills full-time

    Pros

    Working here gave me the power to demand a higher salary from my current employer. Other than that I don't have any pros for this company AT ALL!!!!!! Do yourself a favor and don't apply for this company, unless you are just using it as I did!!!

    Cons

    This is the worst company I've ever worked for! Upper management, from the DM to corporate and the owner/partial owner/previous owner, are all unethical, deceitful and unprofessional!!

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the new owners is to completely rid the company of those in corporate, the previous/partial owner!!! And for the love of God change the name!!!! Start fresh with a team that is professional, ethical and one that truly cares about its employees! Get a new POS system!!!
