    Excellent work place

    Pros

    The environment is very happy and upbeat. Not that fake “everything is great!” But just a genuine happiness at the job. Everyone I work with enjoys the job as no one is asked to do anything beyond their actual job requirements meaning you don’t have that awful experience of being a good worker who picks up the other bad workers’ slack. The benefits (retirement plans, sick days, PTO) are also excellent. I’ve never worked for a company that cares. Though the bar is so low it’s in hell, HFT raises the bar and shows you what a good company looks and feels like. Truly the best job I’ve ever had.

    Cons

    No cons truly worth mentioning; just store-to-store personal issues.

    Good compared to others

    Pros

    This job has good benefits and the job duties are pretty simple. Great management but not the sales assistant manager.

    Cons

    It gets very busy on the weekends and make sure to stand your ground on saying this was not in my job description because they will try to make you do more than you signed up for.

    Don’t let your management treat you poorly, you don’t deserve it!

    Pros

    It’s decent pay for retail.

    Cons

    The management is very one sided. If the higher ups decide who they like it’s impossible to move up any further in the company without transferring stores. They like to pick and choose which policies to follow and who has to follow “said” policies because everyone isn’t held to the same accountability standard. The managers can come in and take their bad mood out on associates without any repercussions or even a talking to. I’ve been here for a couple years and my manager has always been a negative Nancy and very condescending to the associates he doesn’t favor but the store manager is so convinced of his “contribution” to this company that he overlooks everything you ask him to address. Wouldn’t recommend this place if you like to go home in a good mood. But maybe most stores aren’t like that.
