    I worked at Harry and David full-time

    Pros

    Above average pay for a retail position. The discount was 30%, on certain days it jumped to 50%. The gift boxes, baskets, towers... TRUFFLES!

    Cons

    Undertrained. I had very little product knowledge; I wasn't satisfied with the customer service I provided. Management was very unstable. Too many personal problems brought to work. In my opinion the merchandise was extremely overpriced.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees! Offer Feedback. Don't feel that you can't coach your employee because his/her feelings may get hurt, especially when that employee's behavior has a direct effect on business. Be open to new ideas, opinions and feedback. Listen to your employees.

    If it hasn't worked time and time again. Layoffs of the lower tier worker will not fix it. You have to look at the senior leaders who develop these plans. Don't promote those who have failed time and time again.
