    Current Employee - Associate  in  Fort Worth, TX
    Current Employee - Associate in Fort Worth, TX

    Pros

    The salary is more than adequate, 10 dollars an hour starting pay is very good compared to minimum wage

    Cons

    No breaks even if working over 6 hours, store is so understaffed that the company cannot afford to even give 15 minutes to an employee. The work is tough, which would be fine if one could at least get 15 minutes to sit down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Swim in a river of battery acid, company is terribly mismanaged hence the lack of employees to get the job done. The only reason you pay people 10 an hour is because nobody is stupid enough to work under your conditions

    Pros

    Was able to learn many different area's of work.
    Hard working employees

    Cons

    New friendlier employee policies need to be put in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a hire and fire company right now.
    Stop this practice please, as your employees deserve better than that!
    Please make this a place to work where employees are not worried about getting fired every day.
    Update company policy to be more family friendly.
