    I worked at Sierra Trading Post part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours for students and good people to work with in management and on the floor.

    Cons

    Lunch and 10 minute breaks were not encouraged or required. No room for growth unless willing to relocate to another state. Too much pressure to sell credit cards.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, awesome co-workers. The pay is pretty good for the area.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for upward mobility. Since they went corporate, many people lost their salaried jobs and were switched to hourly. It's turned into a bit of a police state.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of just seeing us as worker bees, treat us like valuable assets to your team.

    Pros

    interesting and enjoyable work--good benefits

    Cons

    big corporation mentality--do not care so much for the individual workers

    Advice to Management

    go back to caring about the individual people that work for you--they are individuals not robots

    Pros

    Discount, fun coworkers. The store constantly received new inventory and cycled stock quickly. Store was clean and well maintained. Management generally flexible with scheduling.

    Cons

    Management operated as a clique and treated outsider employees poorly. Initial pay rate is low with little incentive. Management works hard to make sure that part time staff remain below benefits threshold. Company owned by TJX and has negatively impacted STP brand. Over the course of time I worked in the store the stock continuously dwindled to inventory so low that customers frequently asked if we were going out of business. Employee discount is generous but customers can frequently match or beat employee discount with coupons and web specials.

    I have been working at Sierra Trading Post full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - The people are great, management is approachable
    - Small company feel, though growing
    - Flexible hours to suit lifestyle needs
    - Willing to get the tools you need to do your job well

    Cons

    - The vacation policy is just silly; you get your vacation time as a single lump quantity on your hire date. It doesn't roll over, so you have to use it or lose it
    - Mid-level management politics can be surprisingly petty
    - Home office location is a terrible place to be a young person, and there's not much the company does to especially attract people

    Advice to Management

    The company is in the midst of some big changes; what better time than now to look to what more progressive companies are doing to attract talent and changing yourselves to match?
