    Pros

    Amazing Discount, great deals, good customer base

    Cons

    Racist, no clear direction ever, DM never takes responsibility for lack of support, no room for growth

    Advice to Management

    This company has a long way to go with diversity and inclusion, find a team of merchandisers instead of two people, DM need to focus on recruiting more

  2. Company close

    Pros

    I was an assistant manager so I was able to run a store on my own.
    My associates were great.
    I had direct contact with the district manager.

    Cons

    Store managers were not always pleasant.
    Unrealistic expectations at times.
    Corporate was ridiculous in their expectations and communication was poor.
    Forced to work full-time hours when part-time employee and paid part-time rate.
    High turnover rate meant we were usually understaffed.
