    Cashier

    Cashier (Former Employee)
    Newport, RI

    ProsGREAT COMPANY TO GAIN EXPEIRNECE, ESPICALLY FOR SOMEONE IN HIGHSCHOOL OR COLLEGE, OR SOMEONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR AN EXTRA INCOME

    ConsSometimes things can be a bit hectic and no direction is given. Sometimes extra hours are needed. The shifts scheudled are based upon the payroll for hte store.

    it sucks

    Cashier (Former Employee)
    Pleasant Hill, CA

    ProsThe only good thing about working here was that it didn't require any brain power and you just have to pretend you're a customer service robot.

    ConsThey are way to strict and have no acceptance for anything you may try to do that's different than they way you're supposed to do things.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Okay for a temporary job.

    Merchandise/Sales Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible place to work, as I can work around my school schedule, since I am a college student.

    ConsNot the best to work for 4+ years. This place felt more gear towards high school students, because it takes a great deal of time and energy for such a little pay.

    There is little to no room to advance, or if there is room to advance the job is usual given to the newbies.

    Not much benefits to part-time employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWish management would look into invest in giving associates that work in more than one department higher raises, rather than just paying everyone one flat rate. It is not fair to those who have to run around all over the place to do multiple jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Mostly fun and rewarding

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Allen Park, MI

    ProsYou get to see new merchandise when it arrives. You get to work with some great people.

    ConsCustomers can be very demanding and rude. Management can be a little of a pain when it comes to setting schedules since they usually give the hours to the workers they like.

    Retail store. It is what it is.

    Backroom Associate (Former Employee)
    Bellevue, WA

    ProsI took a job as the guy that empties the truck for daily deliveries. It was simple work for fair pay. I never had any problems with other employees and felt that the management treated everyone fairly.

    ConsI knew the job was a "first job" sort of a gig going into it. I would constantly be working longer than I was scheduled to work. Schedule wasn't worked out entirely.

    It is retail, not much to say.

    Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsFlexible schedule, some nice coustomers, only one really nice manager.

    ConsExtremly demaning, mean management! Customers can be really rude. Stressful because of credit card, basically have to shove it down peoples throats. Customer service is important, at an inhumane cost.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe nicer to your workers!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Environment, Not many hours and pay is alright.

    Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Chesterfield, MI

    ProsWorks with your school schedule, nice people, nice environment, loved my co-workers.

    ConsNot many promotions, they pick favorites based on how many credit cards you could get, not many hours and will never change you schedule even though you tell them you are done with school.
