    Great environment and coworkers, treated very well and get lots of hours. Whenever there is a problem it is handled promptly. Supportive management team.

    I have not had any negative experience except for pay with I expected as entry level management. Also some customers are very rude and at some times it get overly frustrating but that happens in retail in general.
