  2. "Good company that cares about their employees. But at the stores, some management could be really rude, mean and stupid."

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot if you want. I worked at 6 different departments other than my home base. And potentially could be promoted.

    Cons

    Sometimes some of the management could be really stupid and treat people unfairly. It really depends on who you meet, but more than half managers and team leads were mean and rude.

    Advice to Management

    Good company that cares about their employees. But at the stores, some management could be really stupid and messing around. Although I did meet one lovely and encouraging manager too.

    A policy for employee complaint. Some of other retailers/ brands that I worked for have a nice policy to protect their employees and make sure they are valued and treated well & most importantly, fairly. So it's a line that you could complain to if your boss treats you like horribly or corrupted.
