    Pros

    Orchard is a great place to work and is growing rapidly! Lots of opportunities available and the direction of the company is promising.

    Keep communication open, focus on better benefits to make Orchard a top company to work for.

    Pros

    We are a family oriented company beyond our own store. We have a close connection with associates from neighboring stores. There is a family feel in the store where the associates truly CARE about each other. They cross train and work in any area needed. The company is growing steadily and there is growth opportunity for those who are dedicated to their job and the company.

    Cons

    Wages were not that great but MY store has increased the hiring wage to make it more competitive. Hours fluctuate which is to be expected in a retail environment. It is difficult to have a work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Please be conscious of how much direction the upper management puts on the store level due to lack of hours and employees. Allow stores to have control over markdowns and features.

    I have been working at Orchard Supply Hardware part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love working at Orchard. I have returned several times to work at Orchard because when I was trained from the very beginning they instilled the importance of team work, product knowledge and most of all legendary customer service. If you know your field of expertise it is most easy to demonstrate those components of your job. I love my job.

    Cons

    Healthier food choices in the vending machines.
