    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good team.

    Not able to provide great customer service because lots of items are out of stock and reorder takes time that customers don't have. Always not enough people, but salary is low. Managers don't see the difference between people who are really good and mediocre

    Advice to Management

    Increase salary and hire more professionals

    Pros

    I was in a good department where my colleagues became good friends. I enjoyed my time in this company and would definitely recommend to those looking for either part time or full time employment.

    Cons

    Dealing with rude customers. It is unavoidable when you are in a customer service based industry. It will test your patience but there is nothing you can do. It is the nature of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Your associates have great ideas. It would be good to consider their opinions as it may help achieve target sales.
