    it was a competition for sales.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Orlando, FL

    Prosdiscounts were decent especially on clearance.

    Conssince I was the youngest employee at the time all the older employees made me do things they didn't want to do like moping sweeping dusting and other various things. They always gave me my break last and my manager was really rude to my family when they would come by the store to browse.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    customer service job.

    Customer Service (Former Employee)
    Commerce, CA

    Prosgot along with all my former co workers, every was always well organized Experience and skills to put on your resume. A way to pay bills with the flexibility to manage personal or family responsibilities.

    Consnot enough hours and money.THE WORK CAN BE HARD AND PHYSICAL
    During busy seasons, you’ll inevitably experience more customers, more merchandise, more

    Advice to Senior ManagementTemp jobs offer opportunities for you to build on your network, attend training events, conduct informational interviews and even, when appropriate, enhance your social life with all the new coworkers you meet. Approach your temp experience as an opportunity to shine. Many regular employees see temps as people who don’t really care or who may even make their jobs harder. Show that you are willing to go above and beyond to get the job done. Offer to assist with projects to demonstrate your skills. This will help if you are later being considered for a permanent position.

    Could be worse... Could be better.

    Cashier (Former Employee)

    ProsThe dress code is pretty laid back and people generally do not take themselves to seriously. You can be yourself and don't have to put on a front for customers.

    ConsIf you are not into weird alternative rock/pop music then you will not enjoy it blasting loudly into your ears all day everyday. The people who work there are usually really friendly, but the management team is a disaster always.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeing that you work in a skate/surf shop I am sure it is easy to feel like a child again, but you are adults. Please remember that.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
