    Pros

    Easy to work with your schedule if you are a student. My CSMs are really easy to get a long with and know they have your back. Paid every week.

    Cons

    Odd work schedule, Weds thru Tues. No room to move to really move. Irritating raises even if you work really well at your position.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees better about their concerns.

    Pros

    Good amount of hours, everyone is super nice, and really easy to ask for days off.

    Cons

    I had no orientation, just a few days of training, so there were instances where I didnt know how to handle a situation.

    Pros

    It is a good place to get some retail /or customer service exp. or someone in school their first job. but don't plan on a career there unless you had pervious retail Management exp. it does pay weekly and yearly raises .

    Cons

    I like my job it's just hard to move up to a full time position with benefits unless you are an Assistant Manager, or Manager and the Managers never quit also you have to almost have to be one of their buddies just to move to their department or a nice looking lady, And most of them are busy sucking up the Store Manager & his asst. Manager it's kind of like a next in line type deal , lol I guess its like this everywhere now days .

    Advice to Management

    Just be fair and have an open door to all, treat everyone the same. listen to employees and their suggestions they may have. I do believe CEO, Robert P. Ingle II should visit the stores more often . I know he has high standards and good morals just wish it would trickle down the totem pole.

    Pros

    They always worked with my schedule. I worked the weekends to keep up with school and during the holidays, when I asked for an earlier shift, I was given it. Working as a cashier here also gave me the chance to develop my customer service skills and exposure to working in a fast paced environment.

    Cons

    You're on your feet most of the time, but you'll get used to it. It can also be very stressful during peak hours. And sometimes they'll have you on-call.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are human, but stop with the favoritism.

    Pros

    Friendly customers. Easy labor. Nice environment. Good hours. Nice pay.

    Cons

    Slacking in management department. Short staffed. Felt more like high school than a job. No discounts. Did not have up to date equipment.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to train managers to be professionals. Lying, sneaking around, and degrading employees is not professional whatsoever.
