    I worked at Thrift Town Thrift Store full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is always a good time and you can do alot of different things as far as learning about pricing merchandise.

    Cons

    Corporate rules are cut and dried no matter the employee or the situation. Very sad that they don't bend a little and lose a good employee.

    Advice to Management

    Can't really give any advice because their hands are tied.

    Pros

    Be able to help customers find what they need.

    I would have to say it was the pay. If I had more pay I would have remained in that position longer.

    If I was able to stay longer I could have been the manager. I was actually offered.

    Pros

    The job was simple and did not require much effort. The customers were the stressful part. The workers did not bother you much unless they needed help.

    Cons

    Customers were very rude and wanted cheaper prices. People always tried to argue with you. Many of the workers did drugs on the job and were disrespectful.

    I worked at Thrift Town Thrift Store full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Usually full time positions.. Very easy going atmosphere, like a family.. A chance to move up in the company is always available.

    Cons

    I can't really find anything that I didn't like about my job. Other than the usual drama that other employees would start. I worked at two locations in four years..

    I worked at Thrift Town Thrift Store full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Treated well by management and sales/floor crew. If you want to stay busy, moving around the sales floor all day long, then this is job have. Great job to get your cardio rhythm going. There are also opportunities available to branch out your talents in the areas of store management and assistant store management. Your contributions as an employee are noted and valued.

    Cons

    Not always fun to work in a store with no air conditioning.
    At the start of every shift, you are required to participate in a brief session of mild muscle stretching and bending in order to loosen up and to get the blood flowing. (Not too bad really).
    The required uniform is a very uncomfortable apron that ties around the neck and at the waist (It's cute if you don't move around too much) but it requires constant adjusting. The break times are 15 minutes long. This barely gives enough time to take a decent break, since, if you want to take your break outside the store, to grab a few breaths of fresh air and cool off a little, going outside means you are required to take off the apron and name tag and place them inside of your employee locker before heading outside. They provide small lockers with the number combination locks, (like the type we had in high school) : ) turn right--then left--and right-and unlock-next: open locker next: take off lanyard, take off apron and stuff them in the locker-next: close door and secure lock Next: uh oh! Don't forget to grab your snack money out of your purse before locking the door! Oh brother! ! Note: 10 minutes of your break time has already passed. You now have 5 minutes to get your snack, eat it while performing your ceremonial unlock procedure, retrieve your name tag and apron and put them back on as you are heading back to your work area! Whew! ! Unless you are full of energy, physically fit, and enjoy a serious break time challenge, don't take a break outside the store. Otherwise you will be hustling to make it back in time.

    Advice to Management

    Only require purses and personal items to be kept locked up. Provide a shelf with a cubby or bin for each employee to drop off and pick up the tag and apron. Keep a few bins located closer to the exit doors, for those employees who enjoy breaking outside for a breath of fresh air and maybe a quick call phone call on their cell phone.
