    I have been working at Cost Plus part-time

    Pros

    Great variety of merchandise
    Low prices

    Cons

    -I have never been under so much pressure/stress from management about their free rewards program.
    -If you don't make above 30% in Explorer they WILL reduce your hours.
    -They start at 8.50
    -Be prepared to work your butt off... You are in charge of mopping the entire store some nights and cleaning toilets and taking out trashed plus recovery. You might as well clock in as the cleaning department.

    Advice to Management

    Don't punish employees and take away their hours when they are trying hard to get people to sign up in the Free Rewards Program. I wonder if the company just wants to sell customers emails to make a profit. That would make sense.
