    Pros

    it has an overall good environment. the people you work with and deal with are generally pretty nice. it's very simple and easy work and the pay isn't too bad either.

    Cons

    while the work is very easy this also means that it becomes very repetitive and boring after a while. i learned almost all positions in my short time there and was left wanting to do more only to find out there wasn't much left!

    Advice to Management

    make sure to give employees plenty to do and rotate positions so they aren't stuck doing the same thing every day.

    Pros

    I love helping the customers get great deals and getting to know them as regulars is very rewarding in it self.

    Cons

    We need a bigger store so we can send out more merchandise for the public to find more of their everyday bargains!

    Advice to Management

    Visit the stores to see what the retail stores are capable of and are currently doing.
