Pros

One of the best things is the great 50% discount on full priced items. They tend to be fairly flexible with scheduling, and the work isn't anything too challenging.

Cons

There is no way you will have weekends and evenings to yourself. The worst though is that you are constantly pushed to sell our card to customers, to the point where you realize your value is measured in card applications you generate.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate

    Pros

    50% discount on purchases, participation in monthly bonus for every team member in the store (excluding managers) can have a flexible schedule which is good while attending school.

    Cons

    Weekend working schedules. Opportunity to advance is limited and not really promoted. Low starting base pay and annual raises are small ( between .12c and .25c per hour) annual review process is not very meaningful - such going through the motions , very cookie cutter, no career development plans.
