Like trying to get blood from a turnip.

Department Manager (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsThe fact that seasonal merchandise changes frequently, makes it an interesting place to work, and most of the coworkers try their best to get everything they've been assigned completed.

ConsThe company doesn't want to spend money on payroll. Most people have do the work of three. And management is continually harped on by corporate to get more done with less. They don't care about the customer at all, just the bottom line.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you truly cared about your customers, start caring about your employees. They are your front line, and when they're miserable, your customers will be too.

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