    ASM

    ASM (Former Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsGood pay and paid weekly.

    Cons60 plus hours a week. The district manager is always in your business, a puppet master. The open door policy is only for associates, if you use it as a manager you will be on the district managers bad list.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your opinions to yourself. Come to work and do your job and be a yes person.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A decent place

    ProsI got to work with a diverse crowd. The environment at work was fun and very accepting. Besides, I got an opportunity to interact with customers from different cultures.

    ConsUnfortunately, sometimes, not enough employees are scheduled to work at a given shift, which makes everybody struggle.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove communication flow.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Be passionate about your job, or don't work here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat culture and growing company. Great for a first time job or to gain retail experience. Fast paced and dynamic workplace.

    ConsThe pay is not competitive, and is no where near the actual cost of living. Compared to many other retailers the insurance is nowhere near as great. Not too flexible schedule wise. The company also needs to work on internal development .

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork more on your hourly associates! They love the company also, and want to grow with it. You may hire at minimum wage, and get minimum effort from some, but your dedicated and hard workers are not being given raises and paid any differently than those who don't care.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Company, just doesn't pay enough.

    Cashier (Current Employee)

    ConsPays minimum wage.
    Can get messy very easily.
    It is a retail job so you will have bad customers sometimes.
