I worked at Cost Plus as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Their internship program is a great way for college students to get a real world introduction to office life. With several departments to choose from in which to focus your internship you also have the opportunity to work and/or meet with staff across departments and shadow them to get a real sense of their daily duties.

Cons

From what I saw, internships don't really turn into real job opportunities in their headquarters as they don't expand as quickly as other high tech companies in the area.

    I worked at Cost Plus part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The products were fun, the customers are usually old and really nice (haha), and most people I worked with were great...except for one

    Cons

    The assistant store manager expected A LOT from you no matter how little you were being paid, it was extremely stressful, if it weren't for him I would have loved this job. He was also extremely inappropriate..gross.

    Advice to Management

    Chill out.

    Pros

    You can always count on your day being different from the last. There's always new inventory, and personally I found that exciting. The discount was decent, especially when paired with a sale.

    Cons

    I remember group meetings being a pain that really served no purpose. We also had to bend over backwards for customers who expected World Market to be Neiman Marcus.

    Advice to Management

    It's not right for someone to have to come back from break early because the front is swamped. There's a reason most employees would rather sit in their car for fifteen minutes than the break room.
