    You get traded a little and not by the managers but from their current employees. I would have preferred to learned a little bit of everything instead of just one thing for a few months then the other things the next few months.

    Job training was sporadic, not very organized, and didn't seem to clearly translate into increased skillsets. It was more of a "want to burn an hour or two to learn something you probably won't really use". Easy, but, what was the point?

    Nothing notable. It was pretty standard but sufficient to feel competent starting day 1 of work activities. I think they could start training associates for management earlier though.

    They have a great introduction and training program, and if you ever need a refresher someone is always happy to help or hold an extra class. You can learn a lot.

    My job training for a management position was literally staring at a computer for hours of the day and taking notes. I also watched a few videos. That lasted for a week, and they threw me into the flames. There were situations I had to ask the associates for help, which is unacceptable. They need to actually TRAIN and PREP their employees, instead of feeding them to the wolves. I was completely dissatisfied with the training and would give it 0 stars if I could.

    Decent job at training, Job is not that complicated to begin with. There was about 4 hours of useless DVDs talking about brand culture and about 2 hours of register training. The only useful part was the 15 minute walk through the store.
