    Pros

    Money. That's about it. And of course discount on the store purchases.

    Cons

    Be prepared to be on a extremely flexible schedule. Expect failing at a lot of job tasks because there's practically no training. I got half a day of training. I didn't understand quite yet, so i asked my manager if i could get a bit of more training and he changed my position stocker to maintenance. I quit there, even though i barely worked a week because just like my title says no one cares about you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management there doesn't care about you.

    Pros

    not one thing good to say.

    Cons

    They hire you to maintain the place, but cannot keep anybody since they expect so much to be done for so little pay. They literally hire people that cannot speak english or understand the job so that they won't quit. They come up with all these things to make your job harder like leaving half your supplies in a locked closet or not letting you order things when you need them but having 3 pallets of toilet paper is OK.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try letting your more experienced associates run things and you will have a much better experience.

    Current Employee - Overnight Support Manager in Centereach, NY

    Pros

    You get more the most retail to do overnight.
    Full time is more available then most retailers currently.

    Cons

    Most people that are 18-30 that do NOT work at all get treated better then people who do work very hard.
    Favoritism is heavily on the younger then older, high turn around rate.
    I personally have done everything from manangament to remodeling and everything inbetween.
    They all suck in that place.
    Unless like I said, you are one of those sociopaths that do not work (i.e. young adults). then come join the non sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will burn in hell if you stay as a manager in this position.
    Selling your soul is necessary to exist.

    Current Employee - Backroom Associate in Valley Stream, NY

    Pros

    You work with people from all sorts of backgrounds.
    Moving up in the company isn't a problem.
    There's always work for you, so staying busy isn't a problem.

    Cons

    Management doesn't ever communicate with each other .
    If you need to do anything personal or have an emergency (depending on your manager) they don't care.
    Most of the employees are lazy and all the do is walk around.
    Everytime you do work the next day it's all messed up again. Once again lack of communication from overnight to day shift.
    Management doesn't do any work except sit in the office and socialize.
    Trying to see one of the managers is like trying to get to a celebrity.
    The employees who always excel in everything they never get recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to treat your employees with respect.
    Stop talking down to them.
    Learn how to recognize your employees who actually work hard everyday.
    Try to actually do some manager work and not always stay in the office joking around.
    In conclusion, just communicate with your employees, value them, award them, and listen to them when they come to with an issue, don't just keep walking away as they talk to you.
