If you're willing to work hard and put in a lot of effort, it can be very flexible and rewarding.

Current Employee - Work Hard, Earn A Lot in Bloomington, MN

Pros

If you work hard, keep your head down, pay your dues, and kiss butt a little bit it will earn you a lot of respect and management will be much more willing to schedule you according to when you want to work. I have a second job and have stayed here because of this reason. Once you pass the 90 day mark, you become difficult to get rid of.

Cons

The pay is not so great, no benefits, and sometimes the schedule is absolutely ridiculous--if you work at a flagship store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to condense employee hours so that 2AM closes aren't a common occurrence...just schedule more people at one time.

    Pros

    The benefits are a HUGE +++. Management is really caring and easy to talk to.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours weren't the best. Customers can be REALLY nasty. You have to get at least 1 gap card every 3 shifts or you get the boot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More room for advancement within the company would be nice.
