Being able to work quickly and efficiently under pressure is a key requirement for any position in this business. Enables employee to enhance self discipline and time management. Easy communication with upper management.

    Varied shifts often cause issues outside of work. Consistency of scheduling is not existent. Expectations of work are higher than most other jobs in industr.

    Advice to Management

    Being in a management position it is easy to say that communication is a must during every shift Sometimes information is not given as necessary and can cause issues.

    Pros

    At my location my co-workers were great. They are great with giving you time off as long as you give them a two week notice. I also really liked the enviorment and you start to form relationships with loyal customers .

    Cons

    There is no set schedual. Also ,the time you are schedualed to get off is not the time you will get out. Cashiers do the other departments returns and also have to help other departments if they are backed up with work.

  7. If you have no value for your physical or mental well being, this is the place for you

    Pros

    The salary is good, but you earn every penny of it and then some. The customers are awesome.

    Cons

    No work/life balance . Schedule. If you are a parent be prepared to never see your children.

    Advice to Management

    If you want top notch customer service, hire more people. Your running the few employees you staff in each store ragged.
