    Pros

    Hard work for great hard working people. You get what you put into it. You get to help people on a daily.

    Not the greatest pay. Heck, it's retail. Also, very outdated POS system. Please update computer system soon.

    Advice to Management

    At the store I was at.......... focus and develop good employees and "trim the fat" i.e. people with bad attitudes and work ethics should not be given any tolerance.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, supportive, and interesting industry. Seems to have different opportunities to move into throughout future career. It's nice to have store locations relatively close to the corporate office that we can visit to see how the business is run in the field.

    Takes significant time to learn the industry and data. Each division seems to have their own methods of data analysis and buy-in differs across different divisions.

    Pros

    It was a great experience with great management and the environment was a very friendly environment. The store manager was a great manager who cared about every employee

    There are few cons to working for this company. One of which is just customers in general, they would get very frustrated sometimes but that is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep of the good work and continue to value your employees.
