    “Everything about discount was awesome! It was a large percentage off of entire purchase including promotional items and clearance!”

  • Sick Days  (11 comments)

    “There are no sick days , a callout is a callout , no matter what the reason”

  • Performance Bonus  (11 comments)

    “Performance is based on the building as a whole and it's all or nothing . If one department fails to meet performance then no one gets a bonus .”

    I personally think it’s cool to work there. But this is my first experience working there. But the workers are really sweet and they treat you like friends and I like that

    I really don't remember the benefit options available to me as employee other than concert ticket reimbursement which was really cool.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Assistant Manager in Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

    Benefits are awesome. 40% discount on all merchandise, including clearance, and 20% off music (vinyl, CDs, etc.). Full health, dental, and vision for full time employees. Super affordable. 401k. Paid vacation, sick and personal time. It's just difficult to utilize PTO a lot of the time due to the company's stringent payroll.

    40% employee discount , but you have to order it off the website which can take weeks as that division is legendary for incompetence.

    Had a good work/life balance and vacations. Medical wasn’t the greatest but that was many moons ago.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Assistant Store Manager in New York, New York State

    Seems to be very basic, company has not advanced to match most basics other companies now provide to what is considered "lower management".

    StarStarStarStarStar Former ASM- Assistant Store Manager in Ventura, California

    401k is an option for full-time employees but I had to sign up for this and no real resources were available to find out more info. Vacation time was decent but you were only allowed to use one week off but paid time off maxed out at 100 hours.
