    I have been working at Cost Plus full-time

    Pros

    Fun environment. Interesting items from around the world. Wide variety of products. Customers are pretty nice overall.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity to move up. Occasionally can be overworked. Some expectations are unrealistic.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cost Plus.

    Interview

    The first interview required me to listen to the entire job description and not discuss my resume or job experience. The second interview was with the general manager, a lovely man, but they did not contact me to inform me that I did not get the position despite promising to.
