      Decent seasonal job

      Pros

      Always was asked in come in which meant a lot of hours, decent pay, most coworkers were nice but a few didn’t do much, super easy interview.

      Cons

      Management was unprofessional, favoritism, in the store I worked in only managers were allowed to process returns but half of the time managers never were able to be found when needed which held up lines, managers would hide in their office and sit on their butt eating and talking, but if a worker sat down for 2 minutes while working they would be told to “stand or go home”, rude group text messages from managers complaining about how workers weren’t doing their job right when a lot of the workers there went above and beyond and had no reason to be added to the group chat, managers made you feel like you had to come in on your day off if someone else called out or got fired and made you feel guilty if you said no, managers always threatening to fire people.
