It would take a lot to make me leave.

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

ProsThe discount is amazing and the uniform is pretty easy to manage while still being able to express myself (solid colors). Also, the company runs on California state laws so most shifts are 4-4.5 hours instead of 5-5.5 without having to get a break. (I live in Massachusetts)

ConsI know part of the requirement is to be able to lift 35 pounds, but what is not mentioned is that sometimes you have to do it while standing on a ladder. My store also just needs more people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
