    Pros

    Very generous PTO
    If store performs well enough, profit sharing that comes once a year can be a nice bonus
    Company does believe in promoting from within and one does not need a college degree to be successful

    Cons

    Long hours with no extra benefits come holidays, inventory time and whenever else the store is short handed
    Turnover is extremely high for both management and associates, associates call in daily
    Tenured Hourly Department Managers make more than salaried managers
    Mandatory 50 hour weeks for salaried managers, usually its more
