    Current Employee - Merchandise Team Associate in Amarillo, TX

    Pros

    Flexible Hours
    Environment can be relaxing at times
    Weekly Pay

    Cons

    Workload is horribly balanced, Too few employees with too few Hours
    Very Fast Turnover Rate.
    Managers screw around with the schedule to much, then scold you for their screw ups.
    "tattle tell" environment.
    Pay Sucks
    If you ask for a day off even months in advance, you probably wont get it anyways

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers, Let employees work instead of having to constantly butt into everyone's business by either screwing up schedules, getting other employees to tattle tell, etc.... Your job is to keep the employees happy, not to try to upset them.

    Doesn't Recommend
