It was fun and some what engaging. Its not too formal for you to feel awkward or something.
Not very in depth or descriptive. But the job isn't overly complex anyways. The training is minimal, but a coworker / supervisor is always around and willing to help.
Job trainings were normally on Sunday nights, but they were not very often.
Very good and very thorough!
I just had another employee train me for a few hours and then I was tossed onto the sales floor to do my job.
4 day training. Each class very informative.
theyll hire just about anyone who can smile alot
I had a typical two week training and it was very detailed and prepped me for a realistic experience as a manager. If I had to list any con's, it was simply trying to persuade older employee's to change their mindsets in the direction where the company was trying to head into
Depends on the position and location. At my store, the initial training is really thorough, but any training related to more specialized roles within the store is either weak or ignored and you have to be really persistent if you want to get any of the attention/training you need to advance.
They train their upper level employees (managers, key holders, merchandisers, etc) well, but they do not really take time to train floor associates.
