    30% discount which is pretty awesome. Fun environment, great people to work with.

    Low pay, low hours, to much to do with no direction or time, upper management doesn't care about the associates or leads,

    Pros

    I liked the people i worked with but thats about it.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible they pay Minimum wage and that doesn't feed anyone, let alone college kids. Barely get ANY hours- I'm lucky if i get 6 hours. Usually I get 3 a week. Which is terrible. Honestly I had to leave this job because if you are looking for work a few times a week (unless you're a manager or a cashier lead) don't expect much out of this position. a waste of time and i wish i didn't take this position to begin with. now I'm back to where i started. out of a job.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire more employees if you don't have the hours to give them AND DONT tell them one thing in the interview that they are going to be getting hours then when they are scheduled in....they have nothing

    Pros

    Always something new to do. Keeps you busy and is fairly easy to keep up with. Friendly workers and managers

    Cons

    Minimum wage for a job that requires a lot of work. I could get more at a fast food place.
