    Once you are able to advance and are considered full time, they do offer good insurance, 401k and vacation time. The vacation time you can use however you want. If you have 20 hours of vacation time and want to take two days off you can tell the manager that you only want to use 5 hours of the vacation time.

    Insurance is really good. You get a week after a year. Benefits are ok. It is how the stores are ran that makes you not want to work there.
