    Pros

    Opportunity to set your salary goal, standard benefits.

    Cons

    Store managers are not held accountable for their actions, and have an attitude that they walk on water. The HR department is a joke, regardless the countless complaints about the managers' behavior, they turn a blind eye and our concerns are not addressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR, take action, do your job.

    Pros

    Health benefits are fine. Job is easy.

    Cons

    Associates make too many racist and sexist remarks, and there is way too much racism and sexism anyway. Managers dont listen or care about problems, and nobody trains you properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some human dignity.
