    Great first-job experience for me, the environment was lively and management was ok.

    ProsThe culture at this location was lively, we were usually pretty busy but I never felt short-staffed. As my first job in high school, it made me feel good about working hard to meet a standard and learning about the importance of money!

    ConsI've heard people complaining about not getting enough hours each week, but as a student, it actually worked out better for me..

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Definitely something to try out. I learned that I am a pretty good salesman from working here.

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsGreat coworkers. You will be recognized if you work hard. They will praise you during work so all the coworkers know who you are. Managers will know YOU if you do a great job. Fast paced and you have to be able to think on your feet.

    ConsSome customers. Customers think you are dumber than them. You must know how to keep your cool in many situations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTell us how to get jobs in corporate. Communicate with corporate better so we do not feel lost in our store.
