    I worked at Cost Plus (More than 5 years)


    Good place to work. Pretty easy job and lots of interaction with customers. Flexible on scheduling and they offer benefits.


    a lot of building displays and tearing down after only a week or so. Always moving items aroun. I guess thats part of retail though.

    Advice to Management

    Managers were always good at my store. I would say let the individual store control ordering. Sometime too much stock.
