    Pros

    Great group of folks to work with. Employee discounts

    Cons

    Hourly wage could be higher as competitor are starting wages around 8.00 to 8.50

    Advice to Management

    Only advice I could give would be to have a way to talk more directly to associates instead of just through management. Maybe an online schedule and employee esuite.

    I worked at Kirkland's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth within the company. There are many training classes and workshops offered to assist in the development of managers, who in return develop the employees. Assistant managers are groomed for store manager positions from the beginning. Building employee confidence through the use of training programs is the upside of working for Kirklands. Promoting within the company is a common practice. The company stays up to date with technological advances.

    Cons

    Floor sets are time consuming and can require late night shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep floor set scheduled for Sundays or early mornings.
