Knowledgeable Managers\ Good pay and extra 2 dollars on weekend Positive Team Attitude
Overscheduled beyond my agreed hours per week often when it got busy

The people that I work with often make this job worth it. I have been working part-time for about a year now and have never had any major issues that would make me want to quit. I have met a lot of great people and have advanced from cashier to service desk to head cashier (currently) at a relatively quick rate.
The pay isn't great during the weekdays but they make it worthwhile on the weekends. There is often a large turnover rate in our department which makes it hard when we are short handed and often hire immature high-schoolers that can be irritating.

Compensation is above average for the hourly wage earner. Initial starting wage is somewhat negotiable if you have prior retail experience. Additional pay is offered to those who work on the weekends. Every employee is offered a yearly bonus check based on years worked and hourly pay. Hours are very flexible for both part-time and full-time employees. The individual employee can usually decided the amount of hours and when they work (with a few caveats). Given the flexibility in regard to setting ones own schedule and extra pay on weekends this is great job to have while attending college. Both department and store level management is easy to work with (for the most part). If the individual employee is self motivated and hard working management gives them the freedom to work without being micro-managed. Management does acknowledge those who possess a good work ethic and those that do things that are beyond what is expected of them.
The work environment and daily experiences are typical of a large retail corporation. The work done on a daily basis is very monotonous. Sustained positive motivation is difficult to maintain because at the end of the day there is nothing to show for the hard work and effort one has put in (especially when you will be doing the same thing the very next day, day-in and day-out). Those who have a good work ethic end up picking up the slack of those who do not (which is typical in any job but extremely pervasive in the retail setting). When hard working individuals are promoted and/or poor workers are finally let go management takes a very long time to replace those individuals with new hires leading to severe under staffing of key positions for lengthy periods of time. When part-time/full-time hourly employees try to follow company policy (when a customer is unhappy with it) upper-level management will usually undermine the policy to please the customer which in-turn leaves the hourly employee out on a limb and looking like a fool in the eyes of customers and fellow employees (this can be very frustrating and demoralizing). Hourly employees will encounter individuals within both lower-level and upper-level management that have the tendency to micro-manage their employees. This can be demoralizing and frustrating (especially when it gets in the way of the employee doing their job effectively and efficiently). Attendance policy is huge problem when it comes to the part-time hourly employee. There is a point system that is completely unforgiving and extremely patronizing which adversely effects part-time hourly employees.

The pay is decent at $8.40 (if I recall correctly) starting wage and an additional $2 an hour on the weekends. Somewhat flexible with hours.
They will regularly schedule you for 7 1/2 hour shifts so that they are not required to give you a lunch. If you are a cashier, you will be standing on concrete floors for hours on end doing mind numbingly monotonous tasks, with most likely two 10 minute breaks and an occasional 30 minute lunch if you work over eight hours. The clientele is predominantly white trash, senile seniors and unjustifiably angry contractors. I suppose that's to be expected from a hardware store, though.

Co workers were nice to work with and they payed $2 more on the weekends
Long hours, understaffed, can be very stressful, scheduling is very inconsistent, IPS (need a certain amount of hours to get it), low pay, poor management ( especially the GMs), short breaks, difficult to get raises( need to pass a test for every raise you apply for), only 10 cent raise every 6 months, in store discounts are taken from your paycheck, and they have the whole "customers are always right" mentality.

The pay on weekend days is an extra 2.50 an hour which is great and if you are full-time benefits are not too horrible.
Management is made up of a bunch of high school drop outs or people with bachelor's degrees who are too lazy to look for worthwhile jobs. They are usually always irritated or annoyed because corporate is always switching policies on them, auditing them, and other general nonsense. Work-to-life balance is non-existent.4

It’s great pay for high school kids at $16 an hour weekdays and $19 on weekends
Physically and mentally tasking work with a lot of difficult customers. You could make a lot more if you specialize and take a job with one of the contractors who buys from there.

The pay on the weekends was very high and the pay increase once you graduated was nice. Time off was relatively easy to take and picking up hours was good, too.
I didn't like not having the option to work every weekend. Being assigned to a weekend was difficult to make schedules around.
