    StarStarStarStarStar Former Manager in Kansas City, Missouri

    For a retail job the benefits are not too bad. They have a program called "Honey Days" for managers and it is great. You build up paid time off quicker than any other retail job I had and they are very flexible with taking "half honey days" on short notice. Depending on store performance bonuses are available. Dental/health/vision insurance isn't terrible but we ended up going with my partner's insurance plans because it was a lot better.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Saint Louis, Missouri

    Employer offers a compressed work week format (10 hour days) with every other Friday off. You are expected to be connected on your Friday off but it is an incredible perk that allows you so much more travel and leisure! Vacation and sick are lumped into one - start with 10 days, get 15 days after 5 years.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Assistant Store Manager in Elmhurst, New York State

    To a full time assistant the company gives about 4 to 5 honey days a year. Everyone and then more honey days are added. Honey days are paid days off that you can request in advance.
