Not a bad job for a 17 year old in High School

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

ProsFlexible work schedule, cool store manager. When ever a day was needed to get off from anything, the management usually worked with you. Also you do get a small discount on products.

ConsAll products made in China, tools are not the best quality so it's hard to sell something to a customer that is not the best choice. The pay is not that good, they start you off at min wage and will keep you there for about a year and then only give you a small raise.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay a fair wage and your employees with work harder.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
