    Pros

    The discount is good only if you have kids. Other than that I can't really say anything good about working here.

    Cons

    They give you no hours and the pay is really really bad. I wouldn't recommend this job to anyone. It's a waste.

    Advice to Management

    Give more hours

  2. Great pay, bad job

    Pros

    Great employee discount and you get to learn a lot of different aspects of the business.

    Cons

    The company communication channel could be a lot better organized. There is never enough time to replenish or recover the store properly and this is due to payroll being such an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Payroll is what allows for the company to make money. If there aren't enough hours for there to be enough employees the stores will continue to be trashed, not replenished to it maximum and lacking in associates to ring and help customers shop.

    Pros

    I have not one positive word about this company! Unfortunately, this site will not let me post my review unless I put something here!

    Cons

    No company culture, no time or payroll to train new employees, long hours, low pay, unprofessional corporate employees, shall I continue?

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the updates! 99%of the time our DM would have no idea what she was talking about...if she ever even showed up. I am so happy I left the company. If you want clueless 19 year olds running your business continue to do exactly what you are doing.

    Pros

    The only reason I stayed for so long was because my friends wrkd there

    Cons

    Management was awful, spent most of the time eating and talking in the back just watching us from the security cameras and that was when we finally DID have management since we went around without one for around 3 months. Salary was a joke, I was working full time hours as a part time worker and we never got raises. never got trained and just working there was depressing in general, being surrounded by screaming kids and angry parents all the time having things thrown at you. Rarely ever got to take breaks except for your lunch break and if you happened to miss your scheduled time then you have to fine someone to take your post others wise no lunch for you. Even just going to the bathroom you'd get radioed trying to find where you are and why your not on the floor selling

    Pros

    The great team you work with.

    Cons

    Company culture, disorganized, no payroll, unrealistic expectations, terrible regional manager, horrible customers, ludacris return policy, 20% increase for ALL internal promotions. The list goes on. Only work if you desperately need the money.

    Advice to Management

    Start over, back to the drawing board!! Show your store teams some appreciation (not cookies) and corporate REALLY needs to help the high volume stores.

  8. Manager was horrible. But the staff it self was great.

    Store manager was VERY lazy and rude. She was never there an made poor decisions that hurt her whole staff. She talked really bad about her staff and got mad when everybody quit.

    Advice to Management

    Have your store manager do more work and stop relying on other people to do YOUR work.
