    Pros

    Discount, flexible schedule, easy to learn register functions since they are soooo old, and they have nice loss prevention employees.

    Cons

    Part time so maximum of 25 hours but most part time people have 12-13. Too fast paced, horrible customer service. Horrible communication. Training wasn't very good. Prices are low and the discount is good but honestly i could get the same number of items cheaper on some department stores sale days or coupon days.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stand over someone when training them or letting them do register for the first time most people don't like that... Don't try to guilt trip people for not wanting to work there any longer its pointless... ✌

    Pros

    decent advancement possibilities good on paper the policies and manuals sound great non-store mgt seem fair and evenhanded the store will hire almost anyone

    Cons

    low pay no hours non-store mgt wont respond to concerns of employees in the stores bias is rampant in the stores very low morale not enough payroll to make the stores effective you are expected to be available all day everyday, so you cant have a life

    Advice to Management

    talk below store mgr without them around; find out about the low morale you get what you pay for; minimal wages get you a minimal effort
