    the job training varies, as the online courses (offered as "Party School") are actually helpful and do guide you step by step. Though helping from a coworker isn't really there so hands-on learning is a no. Even though "Party School" is ment for the workers to learn, many times they will ask you to rush through them in order to get work done or even sometimes do it for you.

    Training is extensive and informative.

    There needs to be a separate person to train new employees, and not someone who is supposed to be working train them at the same time. Lines get very long, customers get annoyed, and all we can do is tell the new hire to try and learn a little faster. It's a little frustrating, but the job is very easy to do.

    Good thing that they actually train you. But it's only for one day, if you don't get the hang of it after that one day, then you won't get any help. But some employees are nice enough to help you out

    Job training happens - in my experience - by asking questions and through observation, not through implementation of an actual job training program.

    Not a lot of time, you watch videos and take tests. Then you get thrown to the wolves as they say. You adapt quickly.

    Training up until the last 2 months have been great because I have felt like I have been taught valuable things. The SM I currently have expresses she is training but I have yet to see anything being taught to me.

    They give very little job training and when they do have formal training, they only offer entry level trainingl. They offer any additional training to help bring employees to even a higher level or to help become more efficient.

    The training was fairy easy but the place would get real crazy during the holidays

    They don't really like to take the time to train new hires...they like to just throw them in there and hope they figure it out for themselves.
