      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.

      Not the best work place

      Pros

      If you want a job to waste time and get $20 every week it’s great

      Cons

      The one manager is super rude and has a huge ego, you won’t get any hours but they want you at their convenience any time and don’t listen when you tell them you can’t work so you can get a second job, sales goals are hard to meet when the store gets almost no business.

      Pros

      great managers, good staff, and easy-going people

      Cons

      bare min. pay. worked there for 2 years and was asked to be promoted to asst. manager a few times but couldn't handle because of college load. Since I was just a key holder I couldn't get promoted with a higher salary even though I worked there for two years and met sales goals often.
