A great work environment, a lot of fun.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) Roseville, MN

ProsFriendly co-workers, easy and enjoyable work.

ConsLong hours, always standing, lots of folding clothes.

Advice to Senior ManagementAll day doorbusters are really hard on associates, and don't make sense. Also, more importantly, only use discount coupons for percentages off, not monetary amounts. That way associates don't have to start a new transaction after the customer reaches $75.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
