    I have been working at HomeGoods part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great merchandise. Store will be getting a much needed renovation.

    Cons

    Corporate has no understanding of store operations. Unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Regional and store management need to understand the undeserved pressure on Front End Associates. They are ignored, never shown appreciation and severely understaffed. The customer lines often wind through the que and extend to the back of the store. At these times multiple customers will dump their carts and leave with frustration. Basic supplies like bags, paper, pens, staples and notepads are never stocked and associates often have to make due without. Very poor attitudes and negative culture/environment.

    I have been working at HomeGoods part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work

    Cons

    in the last four or so years it has become quite hectic. While I always stayed busy, now it's overwhelmingly busy with extra stock, hours cut, and focus on getting credit cards daily

    Advice to Management

    Come off the hours or slow down the freight we really are working. Also, reevaluate your management assistant managers especially. I have worked with two now that have no appreciation of associates that are responsible and care about their stores and one was just outwardly rude for absolutely no reason. This level of management has to back stab each other just to keep their jobs along with worrying about some stupid credit card quota that is set by the higher ups
