    Good Job for the area

    Order Filler (Current Employee) Sutherland, VA

    ProsOne of the top salaries in the area.

    ConsYou are worked like they know they are the best in the area. Same work in a more populated area would pay much more. You are replaceable and they know it, and they let you know it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to your associates, many (at the very top) forget that without them there is no you.

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

    Absolutely hate it

    Overnight Cashier (Current Employee) Richmond, VA

    ProsHour lunch break; PTO after 6 months

    ConsConstant schedule changes. Hours are cut after peak season. We have sooo much reshop to sort and also have to run it! Small 10% discount, which comes after 90 days.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvaluate your policies! Why should the cashiers run the reshop? Is that not a stockers job? Why are we doing everyone else's job, yet no one helps us?
