Pros

All the interesting people you get to meet. All the interesting items you get to use. Offers part-time benefits to veteran employees. Always have something to do, there's never a boring day here!

Cons

Low Pay Products often get switched, causing customer upsets, which can be overwhelming. Hard to get more than 30 hours, unless you are a supervisor. Takes a long time to grow in the company.

    Pros

    Great variety of merchandise Low prices

    Cons

    -I have never been under so much pressure/stress from management about their free rewards program. -If you don't make above 30% in Explorer they WILL reduce your hours. -They start at 8.50 -Be prepared to work your butt off... You are in charge of mopping the entire store some nights and cleaning toilets and taking out trashed plus recovery. You might as well clock in as the cleaning department.

    Advice to Management

    Don't punish employees and take away their hours when they are trying hard to get people to sign up in the Free Rewards Program. I wonder if the company just wants to sell customers emails to make a profit. That would make sense.
