    Pay, benefits, 401k, work/life management, etc

    Plays favorites, doesn't hold chronically bad employees accountable; my store would rather write my whole department up than pick out the bad apples, which happened 4 times.

    Pros

    benefits are better than other pt/ retail stores. good support systems for financial improvement. shifts consist of repetitive tasks and walking in circles.

    Cons

    hard physical labor, long shifts, no schedule flexibility. Management unorganized. majority of benefits are not utilized until a year of work.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that they were all one associates, and that they also came from high school. Anyone can grow and improve themselves, do not stunt the personal growth of your employees.
