    Pros

    Working with people who are positive and friendly.
    Talking with people who are also friendly and treat me like a human being.
    Meeting others who are also down-to-earth and learning a bit about their lives.
    Relatively easy job physically, mentally, and emotionally. Not very stressful.

    Cons

    Standing for a long time in a small space = very sore/tight back and neck muscles.
    Bags are frustrating. Coupons can be frustrating.
    The customers who do not treat you like a human being.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Great benefits, employee store discounts, double time and a half holiday pay and easy to pick up more hours in other departments.

    Cons

    Rude customers, ignorant managers and no tips.

    Advice to Management

    Don't look down to your employees, they work just as hard or harder than you. Don't be judgements to them either if you don't know where they've been.

    Pros

    Simple Job; you're not bringing it home with you
    Fun atmosphere with typically fun people
    Good pay for the type of work it is; good benefits

    Cons

    Management is very disconnected from employees.
    Good workers and bad workers are treated the same which leaves little reason to strive to be better.
    A lot of jargon and little follow through.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more because they are the backbone of your business.

    Pros

    The customers. Most of my customers are very interesting and very friendly. also the people you work with tend to be very nice some are little off but overall coworkers are not so bad.

    Cons

    Management here really sucks. And I'm not talking about the store management, because of all the store manager seems really cool, but my own department manager is hardorrid he never takes any consideration, he doesn't listen he to his workers and his excuse for everything is "that's retail" I've never worked for manager who was that bad makes you really think about how he got promoted to what the company really thinks of its associates. The Home Manager.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your associates. Happy employees happy customers.
