    Pros

    Hiring process start with apply online and complete the assessment test, then, three days later got a call from SM for face-to-face interview which went well. She was very nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. Ask me questions about how to handle customer, what integrity means to you, what dependable means, and how to handle difficult customer. I answered the best I can. She gave me overview of the job responsibility of an Asst Store Manager, how important in minimizing shrink in the store, and maintaining store. Then, she called me again and offered me the job, then sent me the new hire packet/express hiring to do online. FIlled out all the necessary info and took a drug test that day(on a Tuesday), as well as they will check my background. A week later, also on a Tuesday, I got a call that I passed the drug test and background check, and told me to show up and fill out paperwork and started training that day. I was very, very happy that I got the job. I've been waiting for a week and they finally called me. Thanks to the wonderful Store Manager who kept me informed and I will working with her which I looked forward to.

    Cons

    The store is short-handed, and the store need a lot of work in being more presentable to customers.

    Pros

    - Great entry level position for learning retail and day-to-day store management. - Hours tend to be very flexible with multiple shifts available. - A good boss/store manager makes all the difference.

    Cons

    - Very poor pay rate and poor benefit opportunities. - Very limited hours resulting in shift-staffing being limited. Be prepared to work by yourself a lot or with only 1 co-worker. - A bad boss/store manager can make it difficult to work with.
