Pros

Friendly co-workers and management; pays the bills; relatively stress-free job; the work you do is appreciated

Cons

Lack of performance based raises (2.5% across the board does not make me want to do more); customers at times (it's retail, you have to expect it); WAY too much bureaucracy (corporate does not understand how stores actually work); low employee morale, especially with management restructuring. This went from a potential career path to just a job.

Advice to Management

The store-level employees are an intricate part to the company. Cut back the bonuses you are writing yourselves and show some appreciation to people who help drive the sales that write your paychecks.

    Pros

    Good coworkers. Potential to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Cutting costs in too many ways for no reason. CEO does not seem to care about the employees. Corporate expects way too much from employees and does not give enough.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and look at the little guys for a change. We all work very hard whether or not it's shown.

  2. A good place to be

    Pros

    The store is a good place to be, it is a good company to start at and you can carry yourself a long way in the company if you choose.

    Cons

    It is retail at its heart so it has the usual downfalls, and some of the communication within the company could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time and make it easier to listen to employee input.
