First they neglected my interview. After waiting for almost half an hour, I asked someone what the hold up was and they told me the manager was in another interview! How could she be in another interview during mine!? I was furious and don't know why I waited but I did. They hired me then proceeded to be the worst communicators EVER. They didn't want to be courteous and give me days for training so I had to call them 4 times to find out. I was trained for one day by a passive aggressive girl. Even better, after my first week, my manager ditched me and didn't even think to add me to the schedule. The store was FILTHY- one time there was a line of ACTUAL poop leading up to the registers. There was trash everywhere. One day I made a simple mistake and one of my coworkers thought the right thing to do would be to verbally harass me in front of everyone. I was told when hired that I'd be given 20-25 hours a week - I had my hours cut to 5 hours over the course of 2 weeks. I cross trained in fulfillment to get more hours - did nothing. Nothing is marked to help you find stuff and you'll get attitude if you ask for anything. The management are liars. I hope karma gets you.
