    Pros

    It's a job. Keep your attitude outside . Come to work dressed properly.

    Cons

    It can be a challenge trying to keep your department clean and be called to be on register

    Advice to Management

    Be more stern with dress code and how your employees talk around customers and keeping register clearer for next day

    Great progressive company but not enough opportunity to make changes at a store level.

    I worked at Value Village full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Production experience, some of the great people you get to work with

    Cons

    Management, unreal quota for a crappy wage, a lot of gossip

    Advice to Management

    Actually let your employees know they are doing a good job, don't constantly low ball your employees when you know they deserve better pay for the crazy amount of work the production team members do, acknowledge the jobs aren't easy as pie

    I worked at Value Village part-time

    Pros

    It was fun interesting seeing all the new stuff coming in great employees to work with.

    Cons

    Okay so you need the day off well they're going to write you up but still make you make up your hours even though they wrote you up. You call out you have a doctor's note but you still get fired even though you went to the doctor with no insurance because the first time you have to leave because of the doctor's reason they want a doctor's note if you're not feeling good but ever very inconsiderate I think because who doesn't get sick and just need a day off.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting good employees go 4 for stupid reasons like calling out because you're sick even though you got a doctor's note because you require one and you still get fired and if you make up the hours that you missed how come you still get wrote up.

    I worked at Value Village part-time

    Pros

    Met and worked with some sweet people over the years...

    Cons

    I worked there for years till I got sick, missed some days for doctors appointments. They complained even though I brought in doctors notes. They complained because I wasn't able to finish my work. Instead of working with me, I got threats of write ups.

    They also offer no benefits....

    Advice to Management

    You should try caring more about your employees. Without them, you have no company. They are the ones who do all the hard work that you wouldn't think of doing.

    I worked at Value Village full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work, great mission, can be a very fun work environment with some great incentives, easy to pick up more hours

    Cons

    I had several issues that I took to my boss and the people above them and nothing was ever done. Me and another employee did so much work with no questions and got criticized and never once received positive recognition. For being what it is it just wasn't worth it. Pay sucked as well.

    Advice to Management

    You need to listen to your employees and crack down on the childish talking behind others backs. For a work environment it was very very unprofessional
