A great place to work at and learn from

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsWorking here makes me feel like I'm doing something good because of the values we uphold for communities, human rights, and the environment. Upper management takes care of their employees fairly, depending on how much the employee contributes to the team. Schedules are flexible, employee discount very generous altho its still more rewarding to be a love your body member. While most locations try to offer exceptional customer service, not all stores are accommodating or bother to connect with customers.

ConsJust not a lot of full time positions available, most employees are pt, so while it can be a great place to start at while youre still single, there's not a lot of options for those with dependents.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore hours could keep your employees from considering other options.

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