Fun job, for what it is

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Glen Burnie, MD

Prosgood atmosphere
good music
good co-workers
good managers
body mods ok,
GREAT discount (i miss it :()
no dress code

Consvery low pay
very few hours,
holiday time sucks
have to stay extra late on important holidays, christmas eve etc
managers were always upset, at higher ups, saying they were terroristic.

Advice to Senior Managementbe fair, find people who want to work for the company and keep them, pay them well, and get stricter rules on shoplifting or someone is going to walk out with the whole store and you wont even know...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
