Enjoyable...at first

Sales Associate (Current Employee) Phila, PA

ProsGood work experience especially those looking for their first job
Flexible hours during peak
Most of the customers are very nice and appreciate your help

ConsUnrealistic sales goals some days
Customers will sometimes make a big fuss over not getting something for an extra discount
Almost impossible to get promoted to full time
A LOT of pressure on the associates to make sales goals and get sign ups for the rewards program
Pressuring customers who do not want to be a rewards member for whatever reason

Advice to Senior ManagementActually talk to every associate and figure out from their view point what needs to change in the way each store is ran. Also, appreciate however many people are signed up to be a rewards member and not focus on how many choose not to for their own personal reasons

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
