    Pros

    One of the best reasons is to solve and help to improve their house improvement needs.

    Cons

    One of the downsizes is when is not enough staff to cover all the registers around in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Is just to make a better schedule to cover the front end.

  2. Helpful (22)

    Solid company with a long standing and reputable history, but does not consistently value tenure throughout the chain.

    Pros

    Opportunity for team players and dependable workers, as well as for great leaders to promote. Great benefit program, including health, dental, vision, 401 K, etc.
    Extensive training available for all employees, including management staff and is ongoing. It is typically completed on-line and in some cases, with class room settings. Very people oriented and customer service intensive business if you enjoy same.

    Cons

    Holiday, nights and weekend hours...which is to be expected in this industry. Some high turnover of sales floor and cashier positions, as well as senior management (not all, but some) outside of the store can treat staff demeaning or even threatening, making for a difficult work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where you started and take care of your store teams. They make it happen and without them, none of the customers would be happy, nor could the business model succeed. Too many talented managers and employees leave or are driven out due to poor managers above them. This has and does occur even at some of the Regional staff level, while their respective corporate leadership can be naive to it. They will even run off great staff, store or even district leadership using false performance allegations. Corporate teams need to monitor field office closer and challenge turnover of tenured or other red flag scenarios. Problems are not always others....as sometimes they are the in position dysfunctional leader.
