It seems to have fewer cuts than my current company judging by this page, so that's already a plus in my book. But I'd like to know more about the work environment, what's it like? How does it compare to other retailers? I learned my lesson about doing my due diligence before accepting a job from my current employer.

Work hours suck! There is no consistency in your schedule which is available only two weeks in advance. Rarely do you receive two consecutive days off as full time employees & impossible as part time employees. Part time employee shifts may be all over the board, mornings & evenings, subject to corporate needs. As a PT Home Goods employee, the job is hard, physical labor & the minute that sales drop, so do my hours.
Depends on the store. Some might be ok but the one I worked at had these crazy snakes running the store from behind the mangers back. They drove away the manager but that was doing him a favor.
I worked for the HomeGoods division for 12 years. It was a good company to work for. There can be a lot of pressure to achieve goals, but isn’t that true with any company. If you’ve got a great boss as I did for many years, you’ll pour your heart and soul into your job. Do your due diligence and find out about the district and regional managers.
I'll take the fact that there are no people on a layoffs page to answer my question as a good sign.
