    Good Benefits

    Cons

    Management will always take other managers word over yours. Some managers expect to much from hard working associates and let others get away with being lazy.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair, spend more time talking with associates and give positive feedback more often, negative feedback can be warranted and useful to an extent but employees need to hear personally about a job well done to take pride in what they do and will provide better custome service if they feel appreciated.
