    Former Senior Team Lead Logistics in San Antonio, Texas

    Worst it took 6 months to get but I understand that has changed. Great employer matched contribution up to 3% dollar for dollar.

    They work with schedule really well. The worst part is probably the sick time. You get sick time when full time but if you have to go to part time, which most people do, you lose it all and never get paid for it.

    My store is ok about asking for certain days off. I've heard others aren't Health Insurance is good, provided you make enough to pay for it. It's very expensive. We "win" store contests per district and supposed to win money for employee activities. But somehow we never see it. But the Managers Office is always loaded with snacks, cake, and drinks for management only.

    Former Team Lead in Garland, Texas

    The vacation accrual rate was great. The health insurance cost was high.

    You have to be there 18 months to receive any sort of PTO time, 401k plan, tuition reimbursement, etc. Until then, work till you drop.

    Current Employee in Houston, Texas

    Cons: You do not receive sick time until after 6mo of work. Leave if you are out of sick time and vaca is taken out of your pay check, even if it is for a family or medical event that is unforeseen.
    Pros: Great health care and vision plans!

    Former Employee in Houston, Texas

    There are decent benefits for full time associates, but as soon as the company went from being a family owned business to a company owned business certain benefits have been diminished.

  • Sep 23, 2014
    Current Manager in Concord, North Carolina

    The 401k is the only program worth getting. When the company goes public that will go the way of the rest of there benefits.

    Former Employee in Madison, Tennessee

    Worked part time and no benefits.
