    It retail. There is always something going on so you have to learn on the fly. They do try to hold trainings every now and then. However, depending what you're doing, if you're going to be on the floor or at the "cash wrap", you will learn more while actually doing the job.

    Manager structure makes for a great training experience. They give you plenty of information and on the job training in order to be successful

    Minimal job training. It's pretty common sense.

    When I started I was trained by video tapes then minimal floor training and had to figure it out for myself for the most part. I have retail experience so it was easier for me than others but I am still not 100% trained after one year.

    There is a 2 hour training session with the manager where you watch videos on the company, safety, how to handle emergency situations, etc. you then fill out a packet and talk about the higher ups, your store's staff, and information pertinent to your branch. After that you are on the sales floor paired with an experienced worker for a shift and a half to learn the ropes.

    For me they trained pretty well especially on registers however rather than us doing the training the manager kind of just did it for us as we watched. It took about a week to fully train us. Nowadays it just takes a few days yo get trained

    The job training is very simple. You have an interview and come back a few days later to watch some videos. (That portion is paid, although you don't do any work.) A manager shows you how to work the POS on another day; the first day is watching videos and learning how to fold things properly.
