      Pros

      Lots of overtime Staff are very friendly Can be an easy job when it's not busy

      Cons

      Very fast pace, customers have no manners and have no problems with trashing the place. This company is broke so they can't afford to hire more staff so you're expected to do more than you can. No discount. When there is discount its usually towards Christmas and its like a 10% discount.

      Pros

      Some nice staff members there.

      Cons

      Management could care less about their staff - probably couldn’t name 5 of them. Poor training. Spoke to horribly by staff and customers. Kept on shift late without pay until management cash up. No discounts.

      Pretty good place to work but quite stressful

      Pros

      Management at my store were all really good and friendly, who cared about their staff. Store manager was often out on the shop floor etc when in other retail jobs I've had managers were always in their offices, so this was a nice change and was not as much feeling of hierarchy. They were very understanding when I needed time off to go home for Christmas, also put up the pay while I was there too. Met lots of really nice people working here, and there are opportunities for internal employment.

      Cons

      Have to work extremely hard, and is very fast paced compared to some other jobs I've had, always very busy! Customers can also be very rude to you because they think everyone is stupid but I worked with a lot of people who had degrees and were highly educated/intelligent. Some supervisors weren't as understanding about you not being able to work excessive amounts of overtime (I worked part time alongside uni) and they would get annoyed if I couldn't work, think they were under quite a lot of pressure from managers though. Also - no discount except from in December where you get 10% off at Christmas
