    Pros

    Easy work
    Direct deposit available
    Flexible hours
    Employee discount
    Weekly pay

    Cons

    Minimum wage, surly dishonest co-workers, customers think they can take advantage of you. Management talks down to associates. work is mind-numbingly tedious and I wasn't paid enough to care.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your store managers are hiring competent supervisors who arent constantly stabbing each other in the back.

  2. Really great people so far. You will learn all positions inside the store.

    Pros

    The building in which I work I have two absolutely amazing managers and some fantastic coworkers. They have been so flexible with the scheduling, working around whatever i needed them to.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no room to grow here. They will hire basically anyone. The time i have been employed here they have hired some of the most unprofessional, worst workers i have ever seen. The pay is so low and i average about 16 hours a week. There is a lot of favoritism with certain employees. They tend to push credit card applications too hard. Training is atrocious and they are usually understaffed.

    Pros

    Great way how to learn to do more in the retail field. Easy to rise in the company. Good products.

    Takes a while to earn a decent amount of cash. Unorganized, Store is majority of the time messy. Sell things in any condition. Have to be there for years to make it somewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key, and work better with the team (other employees).

    Pros

    If you love merchandising, you will love this job. It is constant in this high volume store. The company pays well and it's benefits are good. The company has reasonable expectations. The majority of the Regional and Corporate leaders have been great...for lack of better words. They visit, report to their directs, and always have positive things to say to go along with the opportunities they see.

    Cons

    Retail management has always required more than 45 hours. If you have a good team its not too bad. The turnover in associates is another factor in this company and other retailers I've work for. They start at minimum wage. There are opportunities for some exceptional associates if they can live on small wages until they are promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Would like to see the company be a little more competitive with starting wages.
