Pros

Pay is excellent compared to other retail companies

Cons

No flexibilty when it comes to scheduliing
They rank co-workers against each other using the rankings as a means of distributing hours
Do as I say not as I do attitude of managemet
Favoritetism abounds

Advice to Management

Due away with the archaic system of ranking non commisioned employees against with other. It breeds contempt amongst co-workers who are supposed to work together as a team to carry-out the goals of the company.

    Pros

    Pay is alright. Discount alright but could be better.

    Cons

    There are always opportunities because the company has a high turnover. Ranking system sucks. If your direct manager has a personal grudge, feels that you are not prepared to do the job when you are, or doesnt like you then it can affect your movement in the company. It would be nice if given a trial run but this doesnt happen. Politics politics in this company.
