    I worked at Varney's part-time for more than a year


    Employee discount (but it didn't apply to textbooks). Many coworkers were really nice people.


    Pay was horrible. My supervisor was horribly overworked and overstressed, they needed more staff that would actually shoulder some of their burden, but because the way that things were structured by higher ups this wasn't possible. Very resistant to change, and company is run poorly. They never hire a good graphic designer, so all advertising looks crappy, probably because they don't pay enough to get a good one. Poor company culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so resistant to change. Listen to your employees more. Pay people better wages. Your website sucks, fix it.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Varney's in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with the human resources manager and the store manager. They asked me about my previous work experience and how I could relate it to the job. They asked how many people I was friends with anf how I could convince them to spend money with them. I found out I got the job a couple days later, like they told me. There isn't really any negotiating the pay. Good luck trying to get a raise! The main thing I learned was to do what they say...even if it seems backwards.
