    Really depends who your manager is. You have to play "the game"

    Hire REAL managers instead of just temporary ones that only want to be buyers.

    Good Management, hour flexibility, stability is never a worry.

    Raises are small, Multiple responsabilities that aren't truly compensated. Younger hard working associates doesn't have much reward

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation in raises for associates that go above and beyond and not only the ones you can promote but also the part time associates that bend over backwards for the company.

    Pros

    Multi-tasking. You get to work all over the store.

    Cons

    The pay $7.25/hr. There is no way to advice. Everyone is part-time so they won't have to give you benefits. A employee who worked for the company 8+ years only received a $1 raise.

    Pros

    Retail associate job is a great job to get started in customer service since all jobs require some type of it.

    Cons

    Not many hours given even to those who have worked in the retail stores for many years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be aware of your actual hard workers and the ones who slack. Giving hours to workers who slack than the ones who work hard will only hinder your store.

    Pros

    if your career back ground is going to be retail this is a good place to start. Very informative how it works and comes together.

    Cons

    The company makes changes that makes any sense then they come back and ask the employees imput instead the other way around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let a regular employee sit in on some of the start up meetings with upper management to give feed back. We are the ones who do the jobs on a daily basis. Who would know better than us how things are going.
