whish i would have just kept looking

Sales Associate (Former Employee) Lawrence, IN

Pros-getting to see movies before they hit the streets
-good for extra cash if you're a student or something

Cons-very impersonal management
-low wages
-rude customers
I was fired for two "reasons". One, after being trained in 20 mins to close the store at night, I made minor mistakes the first two times closing by myself. Two, during customer service scenarios, my manager gave me a rediculous scenario in front of our regional manager. He said that I "over explained myself". I was told before these scenarios that whatever happened would reflect on the manager and not me. This was a lie.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management does a good job. The store obviously has a good format or it would be out of business.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
