    Pros

    Stable company, medical benefits decent

    Cons

    Employees are just a cog in a wheel, management more focused on personality and perceived "behavior" than actual performance and productivity, no opportunity for internal movement outside of your specific department, if you want a different role (including lateral) you have to quit and return, organization is extremely top heavy (example - senior manager, manager, supervisor and lead over a team of 3 people)

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are not assets or capital...they are human beings. Consider whether the right people are in the right roles, and if not how you can help them get there, instead of just discarding and replacing.

  2. Dealing with customers can be fun, but the job is very stressful

    Pros

    If you're with a good motivated team, the job can be fun. Several hours of comedy shared with customers. The medical coverage is good, and so are the dividends you can earn every five years from your stock options and shares.

    Cons

    Extremely stressful. The company has too many contradictory priorities. On the one hand, the stores must be perfectly clean (to pass ECOSURE inspection exams). On the other hand, they want to save by cutting hours, which leaves two-men floors for hours where no cleaning can be done.

    Advice to Management

    Either clean stores with the necessary amount of personnel present to do it, OR saving money and not prioritizing store cleanliness and safety. Choose. Multitasking won't solve it for you, its a myth.
