Former Employee - Sales Associate  in  Redwood City, CA
Former Employee - Sales Associate in Redwood City, CA

Pros

They'll hire anyone who seems to have their stuff together. You can get a job there if your really hurting to find a job.

Cons

...They'll hire anyone who seems to have their stuff together. They pay so little that no one stays there for a long time, their employees are a revolving glass door. They expect you to do all this work even though they start you off at a low pay and give little to no raises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your employees a littler more and you might have to hire every person who applies.
