    They will fool you from the very beginning

    Pros

    You do work with a lot of great peers, and sometimes are capable of becoming on a first name basis with your customers.

    Cons

    From the very beginning they tell you all of the benefits, perks, and equality within their company. They say they have an "open door" policy regarding their managers and employees, where there is no retalliation against anyone. They lied. I was a manager in the front end and only made 30 cents more than the cashiers, the head managers who had been there for more than 10 years were the worst. They would lie to your face and accuse you of things you had no idea even happened. They would schedule you to work until 1am, then have you come in at 5:30 to open the next day. If you ever complained to HR or to a higher manager due to their "open door" policy, expect your hours to be cut and to never have a civil conversation again. They consistently revealed personal information to other employees, items of information that are supposed to be protected under federal law, yet would deny ever revealing it. They would change many people's schedules without any notice, and keep you for at least an hour over your scheduled leaving time, without breaks if it was busy. They would put only boys out in the parking lot, sometimes for 2-3 hours in 105 degree weather, and would rarely if ever send girls, claiming sexual equality all the while. They start new employees at higher wages than employees who've been there longer, somtimes dollars more. They eliminated a position called CCS, because they thought that it was unnecessary. However, they began using people as that position working them more hours, more responsibility, without a title, position, or more pay. If you're cross-trained in multiple departments, you're supposed to receive compensation. However you never get it. Now, they're slowly starting to revert to the ways of Wal-Mart by cutting the Bagger position, and having the carousel checkstands, a mistake that they will regret. This was once a great company to work for, now it's merely an illusion.

    Best Retail Job

    Pros

    One of my favorite things about being a shopper is that it is easy and simple to understand and you get paid a pretty penny for doing so. Completing your shopping runs in an hour or less makes the work day go by fast, and you are guaranteed 2 breaks for a 6 hour shift and 2 breaks and a lunch with an 8 hour shift. Also you barely have any interaction with customers unless they need help with locating an item or asking if we carry a certain item.

    Cons

    Subbing and shorting items on an order can be stressful at times, if a couple people call in sick it can put the shopping behind schedule same thing goes if there is a high volume of orders to be shopped. Earliest shift starts at 5AM , but you do get out early and have the rest of the day left it just depends on how you look at it.
