    Pros

    Nice staff, single POS system, good relationship with managers, and open door policy.

    Cons

    -They keep the salary at minimum wage. Not a cent higher. -No full time position available as each store only gets one or two openings for a full timer. -Limited hours. The most a part timer can work is 25 -Associates are expected to work on the floor AND register. Sometimes it seems like they're not paying you enough.

    Advice to Management

    None. Management can't fix this. The higher ups can.

    Pros

    Its definitely easy work, no doubt about that. The scheduling in my case has been flexible. Good work environment as well.

    Cons

    The work is tedious since you have to do the same things every single day as the store is always shopped in. Minimum wage doesn't necessarily motivate people to work either causing some workers to barely contribute.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees reason to be excited beyond "do it or be written up"

    Pros

    -sometimes you get a good co-worker or customer -manager are pretty ok with giving you a requested day off if you do it at least two weeks in advanced

    Cons

    -customers are usually very rude -our extremely lenient return policy -our coupon policy, having to explain it over and over again -Drama between co-workers, feels like you're back in high school -the $50 bonus you're supposed to get when someone who gets hired that put you down as a reference never comes -your pay is minimum wage -yearly raise never comes, and if it does it's usually 5-10 cents -having to answer the phone while you're cashier with a huge line of customers -on the rare occasion you are really sick, can't come in, and someone can't cover for you, you get written up -if you get sick at work you have to stay til the end of your shift -never a stable work schedule -we're open on major holidays like Easter all day -people come in and out, people constantly leaving and quickly replaced without a thought

    Advice to Management

    -reconsider return policy and coupon policy -treat your sales associates better -remember we have families too on major holidays -keep things consistent

    Pros

    - Very good at working around your class schedule - Provide inexperienced workers with job training

    Cons

    - Pay starts at minimum wage and yearly raises rarely go above $0.15/hour - They hire a lot of lazy employees, so if you are a hard worker you'll often be forced to finish their work as well as your own - Some managers use their power to disrespect associates

    Advice to Management

    Provide incentives for hard workers. The pay is laughable which leads to poor work ethic and high turnover.

    Pros

    Not many here. The people can be friendly and the work is easy but thats about as far as it goes.

    Cons

    Lazy work force, Management sets this example. I would be surprised to find out that few if any at all have college degrees.

    Advice to Management

    Up your game and re-work from the top
