    Pros

    love the people here you make awesome friendships, very easy job, can be easy to grow in the company if you are a good worker.

    Cons

    putting away returns is probably the most annoying part, and some people don't do a good job cleaning the store so you have to sometimes work harder because of that to get it clean.

    I worked at Bob's Stores part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Bob's Stores is good for a student or as a first part time job. It is easy to balance the job with school or personally life since the job is not stressful and the hours are flexible.

    Cons

    Bob's coupons exclude many brands and the majority of customers use coupons. It becomes very tedious to constantly have to remind customers of all the rules and exceptions to the coupons and the rewards program in general.
