Fun but crap pay!

Key Holder (Former Employee)

ProsYou get an excellent discount, so this comes in handy when they want you to promote the items in the store. Fun music.

ConsThey try to start you at the very bottom of minimum wage. The managers are sneaky. Hard to get a promotion.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more! Management decides how much they want to start you off at but they choose the bare bottom! Also, management in the store I worked at constantly stole and when it was reported the DM said to mind your own business! Terrible terrible practices at this company.

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