    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    large diverse group of people to work with. A set group of expectations of what is to be done on a day to day basis. Was allowed to to get things done in the most efficient way possible.

    Cons

    my geographical area was too big, (stores in 5 western states). Travel required budget did not allow the time that should have been spent in each market segment.

    Advice to Management

    caring more about your employees then the stock holders, would build up a much more loyal work force.

    Pros

    Salary was decent. I was paid 65k per year, job was very difficult but rewarding. As the turnover for distribution centers is high, there are always opportunities for improvement and advancement.

    Cons

    Working and managing many associates is very difficult. Having differing views and personalities, it is hard to get everyone on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more so on employee and talent development rather than on process improvements. Training and education could be improved before sending associates out onto the floor.
