Good place to get work experience if it's your first job.

Backroom Locator Specialist (Current Employee)
Hiram, GA

ProsIf you're new to retail, you learn the basics of sales as merchandising.

ConsNot enough hours, expensive benefits, and no challenge or opportunity for advancement for a seasoned worker.

Advice to Senior ManagementTackle sales goals in more efficient ways so each store has a bigger budget for payroll. This direction of the company is unclear and there is no sense of the future.

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

    Bad HR, hiring, and management create an environment where it is associates vs. management

    Pros: Work is routine and easy. Cons: Management belittles you and does not help, rampant associate misconduct… Advice to Senior Management: When you are called to customer service, layaway, etc... please have a sense of urgency and come right away or let us know you are… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
