    Pros

    Flexibility with scheduling, the employees I work with are very friendly (with a few exceptions).

    Cons

    Small raises are given throughout large intervals. There always seems to be a "lack of payroll." Communication is hardly existent. Favoritism plays a huge factor in your position and level of respect. It seems the only way to get ahead is to be a brown-noser.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to treat each associate with the same level of respect, and to communicate with everyone, as opposed to just the people you like.

    The managers clearly favor some employees over others and they end up with all the hours.

    Pros

    Love working with the public

    Cons

    Total lack of communication, training, respect and concern for it's employees. Management plays favorites with it's employees. Some management spend a lot of time "chatting" with "favorite" employees. the managers/assistant managers are too stressed. They only point out your flaws and mistakes. RARELY acknowledge good performance. Constantly want you asking customers to give more money, Cr cards (understandable) and donations for charities at same time. Major lack of training. Seems they talk over you, and treat you as "less than".

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff as you want to be treated
    Hire more employees and stop taking advantage of the minimal employees you already have
    Review more often and give us a few cents more an hour.

    Pros

    Nice and friendly workers (excludes managers and supervisors)
    Nice clothing comes in every once in a while
    You get to meet some cool people

    Cons

    Horrible pay for the hard work you put in

    older workers always have attitudes and complain TOO MUCH

    Advice to Management

    Fire the store manager, assistant store manager, and a couple supervisors and start fresh. You will see the positive outcome. Change your attitudes and communicate better with employees.
