Its just a job.

Sales Support Associate (Current Employee)

ProsHours are good, depending on what department you work in. Co workers are all very friendly managers are pretty cool, very laid back atmosphere.

ConsThe money is weak, you will most likely start off as a part timer. Always negotiate for more money in your initial interview process when you get that third interview.
Its very who knows who. If you want to move up, you have to know someone, and even then they'll play favorites. They make a lot of decisions that don't really make a lot of sense and the store hurts for it.
All they care about are the numbers. Percent of Margin, How many brand of payments, whats your CSI scores are. What your pick time is.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake decisions that are logical. Don't just throw someone into a full time spot where they have 0 experience just because they threaten to quit.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
