Great starting job for teenager.

Donation Attendant (Former Employee) Batavia, IL

ProsRelatively decent pay for no necessary experience, see lots of interesting things, decent amount of freedom at work, customers are usually friendly, and you are doing something valuable for people.

ConsManagement was rough to deal with at times (ultimately why I left), and the few customers that are bad are really bad.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo easy on the younger employees who are actually working hard for you. Just because we are young doesn't mean you can push us around so much. Also, if you are a manager at a new store, don't tell long term employees that they don't know what they are doing. Each store has a different rate of business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
