      My favorite job in college. They paid higher than most retail jobs and the benefits of discounts and free products were great. Of course, your immediate management is what makes it or breaks it, but I had a great management team. It didn’t feel like a corporate sludge day to day.


      Like any retail work, you don’t have set hours, have to work late some nights, etc.

        Great pay for a retail environment, especially in their management team. Great benefits, insurance, 401k, and soo many other benefits depending on your specific needs. They really try to help out wherever they can! Fun, energetic, good vibes, good people.


        District Managers seem to change often. About every 3 years you get a new DM. Upper management/Home Office expect 100% of tasks to be complete, with VERY minimal payroll. It if often time’s unrealistic which can way heavily on the team. If you do not make the days sales plan, you lose payroll hours. Which means cutting hours from the rest of your team. Which ultimately leaves stores in disarray. The bulk of payroll goes to the management team.

      Operations Manager

      I’m currently interviewing at 2 companies. I’m in the final round for Company A, and probably have another 2-3 interviews for Company B I’m more interested in the role at Company B. How can I leverage Company A to hopefully have Company B expedite their hiring process?

      Senior Manager

      Is anyone familiar with organizations that use the interview process to assign candidates strategic work or business cases just to get free consulting with no intention on hiring them? How often does this happen? Have you been a part of this type of thing before? What are some signs you can give candidates to ensure we dont get taken advantage of?


      Project Manager

      Tokenism and future interviews - how can one avoid it? Interviewed for a Telecom position,at end of interview the Manager says, this is not my position, I am interviewing for another manager. Got a rejection from HR. Asked for feedback, they said No Negative feedback affected your candidacy. We had an overwhelming number of well-qualified candidates and had to make some tough decisions. Note: I have worked for this company for 14+ years in the past, done that job, and am more than qualified.
