      Pros

      Coworkers and supervisors are friendly.

      Cons

      Mandatory weekends to get tutored for not selling enough insurance packages on certain store items. pretty much the whole team comes in including supervisors since everyone is required to sell insurance. Lots of angry shoppers because your clueless on selling items that you did not even get a chance to learn about since the job is mostly restocking and selling insurance, no time to learn about products.

      Pros

      The leadership at the store level was empowered to provide us with what we needed to succeed.
