Pros

For the most part, your DM will leave you alone and you are free to run the store.

Cons

Horrible hours! I was told 48 hours and 5.5 days a week. I consistently work 65-70 hours a week. I am in the store on many days for 5 hours alone. I am given little to no payroll which lives most of the stocking, planograms, endcaps and recovery, to me. Bases on my yearly salary and the hours I work, I make just over $9.00. And forget even being able to enjoy the one day off a week, I have to turn my phone off to get any peace!!!

Advice to Management

Invest in a little more payroll. You have done many studies on the affects of turnover when you loose a store manager. Why don't you invest in your biggest assets? Your store managers!!!!!

    Pros

    The store was close to home.

    Cons

    The manager wants you to work all kinds of crazy hours. She plays favorites with the employees. Nothing you do is ever good enough... and you only get a measly 8.25/hr.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like real people and treat them fairly.

    Pros

    More hours than other retail(part time) jobs and I loved the ability to work at multiple locations. The job itself was not hard and adequate training was provided.

    Cons

    While working I was expected to work for 8 hours without a 10 minutes break or a lunch but was not paid for lunch(even though I worked through it). Management was horrible to customers making my job difficult. Lack of employees made the job difficult as well

    Advice to Management

    The customers are a vital part of a companies long term survival
