Like the job, hate the pay

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

ProsFun atmosphere. Most of the people are great to work with.

ConsHigh turnover. At the sales associate level: They pay minimum wage, no matter how long you've been there. Constantly changing commission & the goals you have to meet to achieve it. No raises whatsoever. This includes if you become a key holder/person in charge. During the short period they had Assistant Mgrs, they only pay them $8.40/hr. To make up for the raise in pay, you get less commission than the sales associates. Therefore, the pay still equals the same. Even the store managers don't make what you would think is fair, for holding such a position. They dangle the possibility of corporate jobs in front of you. They tell you you can work your way into positions. Even if you are qualified for the position, it is not what you know. It's who you know.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive yearly raises for doing a good job, & for holding positions of higher responsibility. Quit blowing money on things that don't help the company. If less was blown, it could be spent on paying the employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
