    Pros

    The company itself is very hourly employee focused and takes great care of their hourly hires.

    Cons

    Management get's the shaft here. This location is so focused on not becoming union that you have to baby the hourly employees.

    Pros

    Everyone seems to get along fairly well.

    Cons

    Some people try to control too much.

    Advice to Management

    Bonuses/ regular significant raises would greatly increase moral. Especially for positions that should not be considered entry level.

    Pros

    Around the holidays it feels like family.
    Each member tries to show each other they should be there.
    The work can be difficult, which keeps it consistently interesting.
    New programs roll out often
    Rules change based on the type of associates there are.
    Rewarded for being great

    Cons

    Management is not all on the same level
    Renovations showed several problems covered up
    HR doesn't seem to always be there for the associates

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to each other
    the more lax the associates the more issues you begin to have
    the chain of command doesn't always work because there are so many chains

    Pros

    great benefits considering I was a cocktail waitress

    Cons

    Management could have been better. Not entirely their fault...definitely overworked. Employees that have been there a long time pretty much did as they pleased and everyone had to deal with it though.
