    An incredible company that I am proud to be a part of.

    Hybrid Sales Specialist (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD (US)

    ProsYou are challenged everyday and are taught how to run a business. They are very employee oriented and promote mostly from within. They treat their employees very well.

    ConsPositions are not always available for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am not in their shoes but I feel they could become more involved with the smaller stores. I was only in a small store for two months but i felt the time strain on the managers. Maybe consider allowing three full time employees per store. I realize the financial burden that would be soldered because of this though i believe it would result in a decrease in manager turnover and a happier work environment.

    Be in it to win it

    Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany really invests in their employees. Providing training and support in all aspects of your career. They expect al ot out of their employees, but they put a lot in.

    ConsLong hours and in some stores the physical aspects of the job can be difficult. There is also a lot of movement so settling into a routine can be difficult.

    My experience with the company has been pretty good overall.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTime off is good. That's about all you get for being par-time.
    Co-workers are pretty friendly people for the most part.

    ConsCustomers can be difficult and without much backing from corporate they can usually walk away with whatever they want.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to smaller stores. Just because we may not rake in as much money for you as bigger stores, we are still your employees and want to know we aren't forgotten about.
