Pros

Very flexible hours, willing to work around schedules, and good for learning a wide array of skills. 25% associate discount.

Cons

Many employees, sometimes they seem to forget about you. A need to ask many times for hours. Raises have been frozen, so I'm at $8.00 for eternity.

Advice to Management

Change the music that is playing constantly to classical, please.

    Pros

    All my co-workers were really nice and funny. They try to talk to everyone and make a team. The store was really clean and okay to be in.

    Cons

    Management is pretty distant. They don't tell you when you're doing a good/bad job so there's not really any direction. It ended up feeling pretty dead end with no room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Give some feedback or encouragement so people know they're not doing their jobs for no reason.
