    Pros

    It's nice to share your knowledge to help the customers.

    Cons

    The pay is the lowest I've made in years. You are just a number to the company. The store manager promises things but doesn't deliver. Very cliquish. Assistant managers can get away with being lazy. They treat other employees like crap. Store manager has favorites and let them get away with anything while the others were expected to work harder to cover. Ancient registers system. No logic in anything done except if it comes to bottom line which is all corporate cares about. Corporate controls thermostat and lights which is stupid.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as human beings not a number. Everything shouldn't be about the bottom line. Happy employees make happy customers. You are getting too many corporate ex Walmart people in, orscheln is turning into Walmart with worse pay.

    Pros

    Excellent coworkers, majority of managers are exceptional, work often stays active and exciting.

    Cons

    Some managers play favorites. Far too much work is expected out of employees, especially when they also work with customers; i.e, as a cashier, I was also expected to build displays, do planograms, and somehow reach the back of the store, as the only cashier on duty, to grab the things I needed to build aforementioned displays and planograms. Note: Cashiers are not allowed to leave immediate area of register, as only one is on duty at a time, with no one else around to watch the registers and doors.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites. Also, take the time to listen to your employees when thwy come to you. We have issues, too, and would like them adressed. We dont complain just because we can, we complain because there is something wrong with something, whether it be a fellow coworker, a manager, or something with the store itself, and it needs to be adressed and fixed.

    Pros

    Company provides a plan for managers to succeed. Very open with information involving financials, goals, marketing, expansion, etc... Managers are given ample opportunity to guide the direction of their store.

    Cons

    Many facilities need upgraded or moved to a new building.

    Advice to Management

    Have a consistent plan of daily management and stick to it. It's very easy to bury yourself in hours worked when you're carrying more of the burden than you need to.
