      Pros

      There's no uniform or real dress code. Hair can be colored and piercings/tattoos are accepted.

      Cons

      Hated working there. The manager was some random college age kid they hired (who never actually attended college) who was very immature and didn't manage employees, since we were all around the same age he wanted to be our "bestie" instead of giving direction. I finally quit because the numerous arguments between manager and employees and employees amongst themselves, the stealing of sales that belonged to other people, the mysterious disappearance of cash and personal items from the employee area, and the manager who made gross sexual comments about the genitalia of black women towards me. They promised commission since the pay was dirt minimum wage($7.25),but I never saw a cent of it due to the over-hiring of employees which made it near impossible to reach sales goals to get commission. At the end, right after I quit, the whole team got fired because $12000 worth of merch had went missing. You cannot be promoted as there are not that many positions besides management and associates ( and you have to be 18+ for management positions) so your work ethic really doesn't matter.

      Part Time Sales

      Nov 30, 2020 - Sales Associate in Dawsonville, GA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The managers were really nice along with the employees. The job is easy once you get the hang of things. It also has weekly pay.

      Cons

      The job is minimum wage. They say that it’s minimum wage plus commission but that is a lie. Your pay check is just your hourly, the only way you will ever see your commission is if you manage to make more on commission then your hourly, but that is nearly impossible. Hours are very limited, some weeks I didn’t even get any hours.

      Pros

      The atmosphere is super engaging. There's a ton of respect for the customer and the employee.

      Cons

      That being said, the starting pay for part-time work is minimum wage. Here in WI that is not a very competitive wage.

      Pros

      Free shoes, yearly manager reward party, Very good health insurance.

      Cons

      The company only really takes care of the Store Manager level and up, part time is restricted to minimum wage with promise of commission only if they meet unrealistic goals any other time of the aside from one of the 2 peek seasons.
