People who didn't quit or steal stock while working decent hours were likely to be offered a promotion to manager. Pay for that wasn't much better than standard part-time work, but it offered additional guaranteed hours. You get a small discount on store products.
Frequently understaffed with an extremely high turnover rate. Those who stuck around for any length of time were likely to be stuck managing the cash register, as the new employees were not trained effectively in its operation. Teaching them the correct locations of items needing to be restocked seemed to also not be a priority. Requiring involvement from managers on specific register functions, such as giving refunds, meant that during times when they were unavailable the line could be held up drastically. Cashiers were required to greet every incoming customer, regardless of how busy the register was, or else face reprimands.1

They’ll hire you on the spot and are flexible with your availability
Management will demand perfection while boxes of stock will pile up in the warehouse and on the sales floor. Managers will also talk behind your back. Managers will give you either too much to do at once or not give you anything to do, making the job incredibly stressful or boring. There is no break room, just a small corner in the back. There are no employees working in the morning, so I’m left organizing the store, doing my assigned tasks, greeting everyone, and working the cash registers. (There is no self checkout at my store) Management will give you an assignment with little to no training, expect you to do it properly, and then get mad when you have questions. There’s no inventory system, so putting away items is a guessing game. Store is constantly a mess and the lack of employees, adequate hours, and an adequate inventory system make it difficult to make the store (especially the back) look nice.3
