    Pros

    Good job to have if you need a flexible schedule. Management is often easy going, understanding. Low work load.

    Cons

    Little hours. Retail environment. Lack of acknowledgement. No room for growth. Seriously.

    Advice to Management

    You're stuck, get out of there.


  2. Great people to work with. Manipulative management

    Pros

    The co-workers are awesome! The pay was above minimum wage at the time starting ($9 per hour). Also get an awesome discount which is equivalent on average of 40%-45% off.

    Cons

    The store manager, at least at my store, is unorganized and manipulative. He puts outs a schedule each week with random hours essentially. Haven't had a consistent schedule since I started. He also keeps asking me to do other people's work, but not get the equivalent pay for it. Also seems to be severely under staffed on busy days.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your employees like stupid grunts and if they are going to do more work outside of what they were hired for, compensate them for it. Also, look for store managers who actually have a 4 year college degree.
