worst experience ever.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
Miami, FL

Pros- discount??
sorry i have not had the best experience ever. I wouldn't know what else to add.

Cons-the discount is nice, but then again you always have to be buying stuff.
-there are no breaks, it doesn't matter if you work 8/9/10 hours
-work every weekend.

-payroll is non existant

Advice to Senior ManagementDMs only interact with the store managers leaving everybody behind. What about when the managers are the problem? :)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
