    Pros

    Most intricate and professional inventory management system in the business. Total control over every tiny facet of inventory amd freight flow. Success can be extremely rewarding. Good work IS recognized and rewarded even in the worst stores. Family/camaraderie is big across the company. Full time usually = 40 hrs and pays more than minimum wage for most positions.

    Cons

    The complexity of the inventory management system is misunderstood by much of management and those who excel are generally self-taught. Understaffing and unreasonable expectations - staples in retail.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote people beyond their competency - pay them more for excellence in their positions. Train, train, train. "Holding people accountable" only makes sense when they know what they're supposed to do and how.
