    Pros

    Flexibility, second job, coworkers were great. I enjoyed working for logistics flow. They do try to listen to new ideas. I liked the company culture.

    Cons

    Hard to advance if you dont have degree or dont talk a lot I saw a lot of good hardworking people who didnt get promoted simply because they did not run their mouths off like the new managers did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote those who do work hard andhave a good sense of what they are doing, not newbies who know how to talk lots but know nothing about work..

    Pros

    There lots of team building perks and inclusion. The smallest accomplishments merit awards and recognition.

    Cons

    Advancement is difficult. They tend to keep you in your position and pay grade, while adding ore responsibility. They are notorious for this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more room for actual growth to allow prospering, creating more committed employees.

    Current Employee - Executive Team Leader - Sales Floor in Memphis, TN (US)

    Pros

    Great team, focus on collaboration, never gets boring. Store managers are usually concerned with your development and are supportive. Involvement in community is great as well.

    Cons

    Long hours and some expectations are hard to meet. Beginning pay is alright but for the work you do a raise is due after about a year. Staffing always seems to be an issue. Team members don't get paid enough for the work they are expected do.
