    I worked at Market Street United full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have decent benefits and flexible scheduling. Most stores I worked at had great directors and a friendly work environment

    Cons

    They do not give their store team members the tools they need to be successful. They used to focus on training more. They treat their busy stores the same as their slow stores.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your store level team members that have been there for many years

    I worked at Market Street United part-time

    Pros

    Scheduling is good when you need to get covered.

    Cons

    On the other hand, they mess up my schedule every week
    They don't teach you everything you need to know about 'orientation'. Instead "We tell you when you ask"
    Management is out of touch, hard to get in contact with regarding scheduling.
    Performance reviews are just bad.

    Advice to Management

    Fix whats above, please.

    Pros

    With the right attitude you are valued and identified as promotable and should have no problem developing a career even from humble beginnings.

    Cons

    There are not enough training programs in place for lower and mid levels of the organization. It's improved but I feel that the supervisors that are specialists in there particular area of the business are spread to thin and don't really have time to spend with location managers to help grow and develop their operating skills. The supervisors are too busy ensuring that their regions are following current merchandising/marketing strategies.

    Pros

    15 year olds can work here which is nice because not many company's hire at 15. Customers are mainly nice and some staff are nice as well.

    Cons

    Managers sometimes mess with the schedules after being posted and they get mad at their employees for being correct about what time they were supposed to come to work.
