Awesome job with awesome people!!

Team Member (Current Employee)
Columbus, GA (US)

I have been working at Kirkland's part-time for less than a year

ProsThe store manager is amazing. She has a great sense of humor but always remains professional. She works with you and your schedule. The employee perks are great, specifically the 20% employee discount. The coworkers are great and the store store always smells good.

ConsNo cons that I can think of.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore advertising to reach a broader customer base. I have spoken with several people that don't even know what Kirkland's is.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
