I worked at Cost Plus as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Their internship program is a great way for college students to get a real world introduction to office life. With several departments to choose from in which to focus your internship you also have the opportunity to work and/or meet with staff across departments and shadow them to get a real sense of their daily duties.

Cons

From what I saw, internships don't really turn into real job opportunities in their headquarters as they don't expand as quickly as other high tech companies in the area.

    I worked at Cost Plus part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The products were fun, the customers are usually old and really nice (haha), and most people I worked with were great...except for one

    Cons

    The assistant store manager expected A LOT from you no matter how little you were being paid, it was extremely stressful, if it weren't for him I would have loved this job. He was also extremely inappropriate..gross.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill out.

    I worked at Cost Plus part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun co-workers, easy to get along with most people, pay is good, hours good, Holiday competition--don't be late, first job--not quite sure what to expect, all the department managers very nice

    Cons

    corrupt--there was an employee who was hired without an interview because he had connections, tense working condition especially during the holidays, certain hours not good--I had to close and left around 2 am and then had to open about 7 am, distance, training was short, customer service is not the main goal, main goal is to make money no matter what.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally.
