Pros: great prices, if you're a customer.
Cons: terrible compensation and benefits for employees, physically strenuous, dangerous work environment, company does not care for its employees.
After working for this company for almost a year and a half, I have little good to say about them. Originally hired on as a Tile associate, I learned that my job largely consisted of flat-stacking boxes of tile. Essentially, breaking down pallets of tile, and changing the orientation of the boxes from vertical to horizontal for display/safety purposes.
Boxes – more... of tile typically range from 35-90 lbs. per box. Pallets have anywhere from 25-50 boxes per pallet.
Aside from expected to be a physical work-horse (loading and unloading customer orders by hand, flat-stacking the sales floor, restocking returned product, etc.) You are expected to be a product specialist, know everything about the product, how it is installed, and be able to identify the thousands of products by sight.
They track your sales to see if you're pulling your weight. There is no positive re-enforcement for sales, no commission. The customers expect a full-service transaction. You shop for them, you load the product, you drag the half-ton cart up to the registers; you load it again into their car.
Forget about opportunity for advancement. Corporate will promote from outside the company, and demote anyone if they can find someone to do your job at a reduced pay. – less
