    Best is stock option their value is up over $70 a share; worst is the employee discount is what each employee that works there needs because of the poor pay.

    No benifit's package ..and no store discounts so you don't get crap from this store.wait i was wrong you do get crap if the manager don't like you he will cut your hours and if you complain about sexual harassment to HR they just blow it off and if you want to keep your job you better not say anything..

    It cost $80 per week for the benefits. Can't see the doctor because I can't afford the copays now. So I'm losing $80 per week.

    They actually offer insurance and vacation but the insurance isn't good and if you leave the company they keep whatever vacation you may have accrued.
