Disappointing at best

Sales Specialist (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

ProsNice co-workers from all walks of life, interesting customers

Conshighly fluctuating hours, extremely low "pay raise" (0.11 per hr), obvious "favorites" that get more hours, LOTS of stocking, no way to move up in the company without relocating

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's a pity and a shame that talented people are not COMPENSATED for their hard work and dedication to the company. It's also amazing that someone could get a "'perfect" review, with NO need for improvement, yet they do NOT qualify for the "top" raise (.22 cents/hr--what a JOKE and an INSULT.) Most employees have more skill, knowledge, and DEGREES than the "management," yet make only 1/5 of their salaries.

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