    Follow the CA state guide lines of offering more hours to part-timers before hiring new workers. Stop being cheap and buy safety shoes and reflector jackets for workers. Listen to the worker's gripes.

There are many retired folks from other walks of life that are working as associates to "get out of the house" or to stay viable. They are mostly all very good people. Upper management seems very hands off. They don't treat you differently....

    Cons

    There are always the usual personal stuff(people that just don't get along with certain people) and I'm sure there is some level of politics but I don't care or get involved in any of that stuff.

    Pros

    Good people and good experience . Good company and if you need flexibility in your job for school. Good benefits for you and you family. But a little Expensive.

    Cons

    They need to pay the Supervisors more for all the work that do. This company has a lot of turnover with associates. Very few long time associates . Due to the wages other companies pay more with less work.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that your associates know that they appreciate it. And they will stay.
