    Pros

    Fast opportunity to move up in the company if ample effort is put in. Compensation is satisfactory compared to other retailers

    Cons

    Work life balance is stressful for some positions. Once a salaried member of management, progression is hard to follow through with.

    Advice to Management

    Pick the best candidates for positions. Too many times have I seen the wrong choice get the position and it leads to poor business decisions

    The opportunity for growth is always there of course you have to work your way up. The discount comes in handy. The stock purchase plan is a very good benefit as well.

    Cons

    It is an entry level job, you do have to work your way up in order to get more pay.

    No complaints

    Pros

    This is an easy job for the most part you spend most of the night crazy busy stocking freight and making the store look pretty. They offer really good benefits like a 401k, stock purchase plans, health, dental, and life insurance. They even give you paid time off & you get bonuses if your store is doing well.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of consideration for employees from management. Not a lot of communication/

    Advice to Management

    The managers at my store need to know that communication is an important part of the job. Making a speech at the begining of a shift is not communicating nor is it always effective. Being a good listener is also important. By listening to your crew in an effective way also tells your reps. they are also important and valued.
