Hi there.. The salary for Store Managers range from $45,000 to $50,000 base with a 40% bonus paid quarterly, so you can plan on $70,000 / year. I work for one of their Iowa stores and a friend transferred to Chicago and was given a cost of living adjustment so you might even make more in Chicago. Your bonus is pretty much a given unless your store, the sales managers and your RWCs are a total disaster, which is entirely possible in the Chicago market. Ask how the last manager's bonus paid out and if he/she earned the 40% payout. They have really good health benefits and it included vision and dental which was nice. I can't remember what the match to the savings plan was but they automatically take 3% out of your check for the plan unless you request otherwise and I know that much was matched. And they do have tuition reimbursement but I don't know what the structure was like. I think you just had to wait 90 days to use. Again... I hope this helps. I'll add one last thing... heed the warnings you've read on here... I thought all these people were "nut jobs" or disgruntled former employees before I started working their and then I learned the hard way, they're not! Some of the complaints are out there in left field but for the most part it happens exactly how you've read it. Like you, I came from Corporate America and I also like sleeping inside and eating too but their culture will definately be a shock to what you are used too. Best of luck, you can make it work!
