Pros

Management is very supported. They want you to do well and most will go out of their way to help you succeed.

Cons

A lot of petty issues in most departments. New people often steal sales unintentionally. Not a lot of direction on what your job entails, they kind of just stick you out on the floor after register training and let you figure it out on your own.

Advice to Management

Stop playing favorites.

    Pros

    Know the right people and get promoted.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Too many internal changes for anyone to feel supported. The motto is "everyone is replaceable." Most of my previous counterparts are actively looking for jobs elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Look into Pari S. leadership

    Pros

    Competitive pay, very good HR structure and employee support, employees are empowered to use their best judgement.

    Cons

    Hours can be demanding during peak shopping times of year and during sales.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the importance of empowering your employees to use their best judgement. Don't overwork crew. Customer service emphasis needs to flow through to how company treats employees. Treat employees well equals happy/satisfied employee equals job satisfication. All of which makes for an employee who is not only qualified to give great customer service but one who is supported and enabled to do so.
