Pros

Great team environment. The employees are great and friendly! If you want to work hard it's a great place to be competitive! You are given the opportunity to earn more money based on items that you sell to customers! This means adding an extra $4-$300 added to your paycheck dependent on how hard you work.

Cons

Tho only cons are that there are many employees so you're not necessarily guaranteed more hours. Long shift of hustling around getting things done and helping customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It'd be great if work was divided evenly, between associates.

    Pros

    The coworkers are great. Sometimes when it is super slow you can just talk to your coworkers. Isn't many other pros.

    Cons

    They don't give you time off when you need it. They will schedule you when you specifically say that you are unavailable to work, and then when you call out, they get mad at you and write you up....even though it was their fault. They do not let you take your breaks on time. They yell at you when you get overtime, even if you were helping someone in the store. They never say that it is their fault. They will always try to make you feel like you are the problem. They do not listen to you. They will not go over the guidelines with you, and then when you break the rules you will get written up. They do not even supply you with a book of the guidelines. They will tell you to get help if you cannot move something on your own and need help, but then when you actually ask for help, they will talk down to you and harass you for not being able to do it on your own. Non-stop harassment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff more. Change some policies with the new times. Stop talking down to the staff. And, especially, STOP HARASSING YOUR STAFF.
