Top Review Highlights by Sentiment

  • "Low pay for how much we hustled and level of technical skill required, roles felt not clearly defined at times(in 14 reviews)
  • "Because management and corporate is mostly comprised of those who have been with the company and worked hard to earn their positions, many will be mainstays in the company so there is little to no room for growth into a management position.(in 7 reviews)
  • "Hard to move up if you don't plan to be here forever or want to be a manager, so enjoy the time spent and use it as a place to launch from...also, pay is basically minimum wage.(in 4 reviews)
  • "rentals was at times frustrating because there was sometimes a lack of leadership.(in 3 reviews)
  • "The other biggest problem is that communication is an extremely difficult issue within the company.(in 3 reviews)

    A great place to work

    You get %40 off the ENTIRE store and if you work for a year, you get the discount for life. A massive break room with enough candy to feed a small army. Free rentals. Airline miles. Flexible schedule. Working with people who are as excited about the product you sell as you should be.


    Pay is not the greatest especially considering that you have to live in the bay area to work there.

    Great company, fun culture

    Great culture, awesome people. 40% discount off of everything. Flexible hours with the ability to work remote or from other locations in the Bay Area.


    Other departments seemed great to work in. Accounting department got the short end of the stick quite often. Not very green, as a company, which sucked.

    Relaxed atmosphere great selection of everything , competitive prices!


    No communication, typical bay are attitude, it has a double standard, not all personal is skilled, they don’t have a back ground or deep knowledge at the area of expertise.......

    Great company to work for

    Aug 24, 2022 - Creative Director 
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook


    I've been at this company for well over a decade - this company cares about doing right by it's customers, they trust their staff to make good choices, they try to be transparent and positive as much as they can. They are open minded and flexible, and encourage their staff to go on vacation and take advantage of their benefits (free food, free rentals, great discounts, etc).


    Pay is on the lower end of the spectrum for the Bay Area.
