    Pros

    Success share checks, homer award program, learn other departments if you want.

    Cons

    Poor hours, favoritism toward certain people

    Treat everyone equal. Offer fulltime to employees who have been with the store for years rather then give it to someone new. Listen and communicate with your associates. Actually listen and follow thru.

    Managers are associates too

    Big store with 1,000's of items which means there is always something new to learn. They have an excellent training program which continues to be updated throughout your employment.

    Very little flexibility in punching the clock. If you are late 3 times, you are fired.

    Advice to Management

    Have more flexibility in punching the clock. You would greatly reduce your turnover in employees.

    You can learn how to do ANYTHING there! Gaining experience with the company in order to move up the ladder in the company is easy. They tend to hire from within for higher level positions.

    I heard most new employees complain about getting too few hours when they started out. There was a pretty high turnover rate but my experience was awesome!

    Pros

    Great people, atmosphere is fast and hard work is there for those that want it. Plenty there that get by with bare minimum.

    Pay low and getting advancements doesn't change that. If direct boss having a bad day he/she makes yours bad by virtue of stink rolls downhill.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your uppers to ride you and stand up for your people. New district managers that harp on successful stores please learn now to fix what isnt broke.
