Fun Job

Sales Associate (Former Employee) Kalamazoo, MI

ProsEveryone meets in the morning to say good morning to the rest of the crew and you really get to know your coworkers and it helps you enjoy the work environment. Not stressful at all and you can advance in the company if you work hard. I worked in two different stores. One location was awesome and the other one was a disaster.

ConsThe company makes large payroll cuts and sometimes this hurts the ability for all customers to leave happy. Its a revolving problem because they (like all other retailers) rely on customer feedback to praise the employees but when the numbers come back with mad customers they tell the employees it was their fault.... when really we just never had enough help.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your store is clean! And at least let the employees understand that you know part of the problem is payroll cutbacks.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
