    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, good enviornment,great new learning opportunities, great new schedules,

    Cons

    None really, I just wish there was better communication

    Advice to Management

    When one manager says to do one thing and the other says to do the other and you get in trouble for not doing what the other manager said to do. Confusing and not fair for associates, better communication and management to stop clashing when telling associates to do two things at once.

    Pros

    Fast moving company with lots of room to grow, constantly changing to better their company and to keep up with changing times

    Cons

    Only con is it is very corporatized which can sometimes make you feel as though you are not important or that you are expendable and sometime less understanding when it comes to personal things going on in your life

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your team and make them feel as though they are important and let them know that hey truly do make the difference, if they don’t put their best in and don’t care then the store will surely reflect that
