    Sucks, but it's a job.

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Santa Clarita, CA

    ProsIt's a paycheck. Plus I think it's cool that they give a pay raise (even though they're typically small) for every year you've been there, and a winter bonus even if you're part time.

    ConsMajor favoritism from managers. They coach you without bothering to consider all the circumstances surrounding the situation. Open door policy is a total flop, nobody bothers taking the time to hear, let alone listen to, your concerns. Total lack of training, when I first started working there they pretty much threw me out on the sales floor without explaining what I was supposed to be doing and hoped for the best (the training videos they make you watch on the computers in back were mostly just safety related stuff and talk about company policies, with an extremely vague description of your specific department thrown in).

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your associates. Show them respect, abrasive and rude attitudes just make them resent you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
