Pros

• It was a job. It paid the bills
• Met a few cool people that were fellow co-workers
• Employee Discount
• Can wear jeans and sneakers to work

Cons

• They worked me to the bone. I wanted full-time but they kept me as part-time, giving me 39 hours per week just so that I couldn’t have benefits or vacation.
• They are open on Easter which is ridiculous. I flat out told my manager that if he scheduled me I wasn’t coming in.
• Management is not approachable (at least in the Easton PA store). They sigh and give dirty looks when you try to ask anything.
• As a cashier, I have to call for coverage when I have to use the restroom. A few times, it took them 30+ minutes to send me coverage
• They made front end cashiers such as myself clean at the end of the night. We got stuck cleaning bathrooms and toilets. GROSS! If I wanted to clean toilets, I would have been a janitor. That wasn’t in my job description.
• They never let you out on time. They expect you to stay late after you’ve worked 8-9 hours.
• Discount was only 10% for employees when most companies offer 20%
• Concrete floor, which hurts your feet when you have to stand at register all day

Advice to Management

• Care a little less about making money and more about your employees. You expect employees to be loyal to the company, yet don’t give the same in return.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the customer interaction.

    Cons

    The scheduling is by far the worst. Full time employees must have open availability from 4 AM to 11 PM seven days a week.

    Advice to Management

    If there are two employees, one who wants to open, one who wants to close, why not accomodate them both? Why put them both in shifts that don't make them happy, all toher things being equal?

  2. Good Company to work for.
