Horrible

Floor Associate (Former Employee) Sanford, FL

ProsThere is really no pros to this job. The only thing is that they start you at a decent pay.

ConsNo hours given. My position was floor associate. But I was on register a lot meaning the store never got cleaned so the opening shift would always complain. Other employees were not friendly at all. No real training, pretty much you have to learn everything yourself. And I really mean that so customers would look at me like I was stupid. Managers were horrible as well. They don't know how to talk to people. One manager made me feel like I put the store percentage down with there rewards program since I started working there. They are all about numbers and nothing else.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo to training on how to become better. Like really I don't know how they became managers. They all were very horrible.

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