      Sales Associate/Cashier
      Former Employee
      Miramar, San Diego, CA
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook


      Not hard to get a job here, if you're a dependent or know someone to refer you, you're pretty much guaranteed. Spouses are pretty much waved in, despite some having some extremely snobby personas and zero personality. Relatively easy job, either stocking or working a register, the hardest part is dealing with a few very arrogant customers, who will treat you rudely irregardless of how kind and polite you are. Keep a positive and friendly attitude at all times and you will do just fine. Mostly great coworkers as well, you'll become close with your co-workers.


      You cannot get a part-time job here. You WILL be placed as "flex" meaning, you work a max of 28 hours per week, no benefits, no PTO, no sick days, nothing. I can't think of a single employee who's been given part-time. If you are an "NF-1", without a full year of supervisor experience, you cannot advance to an NF-2 position. They will not even give you an interview. Meaning, from an entry-level position there is absolutely NO job advancement. You would make more working at a fast food place, and get more benefits as well. Prepare to come into work anxious everyday as write-ups are handed out left and right, for the smallest errors such as "messy hair", or "forgot to check customer I.D.". You'd better be tough, and get ready to be held to military work standards if you want a job here.

        Decent pay, controlled environment (meaning, limited to customers with base access only). You get a CAC card and can buy most things in Exchange w/NO TAXES


        Varied hours, varied days Management is a bit of a pain when you have to deal with them.

      Project Manager

      Hey everyone, Just needed to vent a bit about this job hunt. It's been a wild ride, to say the least. Lately, it feels like I'm sending my applications into a black hole, and I'm not alone in this, am I? Interviews seem to be the rarest gems, and job postings seem to disappear as soon as I hit 'apply.' Anyway, I'd love to hear your experiences. What's been your biggest frustration as a job seeker? How do you stay motivated in this crazy journey? Any words of wisdom or empathy to share?


      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?
