    I worked at Katz Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    it was a fun atmosphere, great coworkers. overall it was a great experience. worked alongside a lot of other head office people.

    Cons

    construction sometimes didn't hand over the store to us when promised so it made setting up the store to be ready at store opening difficult at times.

    Pros

    Average wage for industry. Good benefits and work environment.

    Cons

    High Workload, pay does not justify the stress.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of cutting hour and expect management to put in additional hours free of change..., add hours to increase customer experience.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Katz Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits medical and vision. No dispensing fee for employees prescription.

    Cons

    No operating hours to cover the full business hours. No job security. Upper management has no focus.

    Advice to Management

    Increase store operating hours and the business will come. Management can not work six day ten hours per day just to get store to bear minimum standards

    I worked at Katz Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefit packages (health and dental)
    Efforts recognized (chance for career advancements)
    Great staff (friendly atmosphere, office a "team")
    An easily attainable bonus structure
    Location. All departments on two floors

    Cons

    Loads of great people left due to mismanagement
    VP's and up made final call on promos - never in control of budget
    Always changing (which is good) but always moving sideways
    Org Chart needs to be updated
    Operations/Stores not aligned enough to head office

    Advice to Management

    Have your leaders stay longer to have a chance to make an impact. By the time they are adjusted and start to put their plan together, they are replaced with new blood, with a new vision, which never gets fully implemented.
