      Great First Job

      Pros

      Coworkers are really fun to be around, Nice customers most often, Great management, Positive and uplifting environment This is a great job for college students or someone simply wanting something fun to do for a bit of extra money. The work is easy, fun, enjoyable, and uplifting when you can help customers find things to aid their spiritual lives.

      Cons

      Low pay that barely exceeds minimum wage, Little room for advancement-one must have a business degree to become a manager. You can be promoted from a sales associate to a "key holder", but pay isn't much more and responsibilities are much tougher. I have been working with LifeWay for almost 2 years and have only received a 5 cent raise. No raises are expected this year.

      Pros

      Christian environment where you are free to share your faith at anytime. Good coworkers for the most part in stores. Stores closed on Sunday. Good work life balance.

      Cons

      Very low pay for what you are expected to do. Micro managed by market managers, district managers, and region manager. Too much emphasis on plus selling or some other metric with no regard for overall store performance.

      Pros

      I had awesome management who took time to teach you how to work in all departments. Even after being gone for four years they are still like family.

      Cons

      Not many opportunities for advancement and low pay. I also disliked having to push sales. Also I felt most areas were disorganized.
