      Pros

      Excellent benefits if full time, coworkers (not management) feel like family, easy to get excited about and feel pride in the uniqueness of the company.

      Cons

      Checkout area was always crowded, understaffed, and produced irritated and difficult-to-please customers. It can be so fast-paced on busy days like weekends that it felt like being thrown to the wolves at times. You can't take a bathroom break or stop to get water. The attitude of management was very much "it is what it is" despite what I considered to be obvious, logical ways to improve the experience of EVERYONE, both customers and employees. The never-ending stress of wanting to do my job adequately, but being physically unable to, and then enduring abuse from frustrated customers was severely damaging to my mental health.

      Pros

      Very inclusive and progressive company with a diverse workforce that is a pleasure to work with. Great place to start a career, even without a college degree. Excellent products that you can be proud to sell. Health care coverage is great and they match 6% of your 401K and it is immediately vested.

      Cons

      Low and middle level management quality varies a lot. Some can be petty and trend toward micro-management, others are relaxed and cool and still effective. Computer system can be unnervingly inadequate.

      Pros

      competitive pay if you have prior work experience, doesnt have to relate to the position you’re applying to . willing to work with your schedule and encourage communication

      Cons

      although communication is encouraged, they don’t always listen. I’ve had to repeatedly ask for things because they forgot. every time they talk to you they make it sound like you’ve done something wrong, and make assumptions instead of asking directly then follow up with disciplinary action where they write down things you’ve done within the past few months and they have no context because they never asked.
