    Great first-time or casual job

    Mar 29, 2022 - Retail Sales Associate in Fresno, CA

    Pros

    Management takes people's schedules and needs into consideration, and are accommodating. It's a great place to work at and the discounts are great if you're a core associate, but still nice if you're seasonal. It's also pretty easy to move between entry positions simply by asking. This jobs is great for college students or those who don't mind working a few hours a week while pursuing whatever it is they want to pursue.

    Cons

    You're only scheduled based on how good your sales are, and they will send people home early if the store isn't meeting daily goals. Don't be surprised if you only end up working even 1 hour because customers aren't buying anything and they over-scheduled. Also keep in mind, full-time is almost non-existent and working over 20 hours is only possible for full-timers or people that take every shift possible.

    Pros

    Great work environment, like-minded co-workers, great management, decent pay, short hours, short time commitment, discount, and good work culture. There is definitely enough room to grow in the company if you continue to meet your sales goal and go above and beyond.

    Cons

    Unpaid breaks, Low pay, sometimes unrealistic quotas, inconsistent scheduling, short hours, and only part-time opportunities.

    Great People, Company needs some work

    May 12, 2022 - Floor Supervisor in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They need to work on offering a competitive wage. Also our Assistant store manager harassed an employee and they made her go on leave but then brought her back. The employee immediately quit because they felt unsafe. Multiple people have spoken up about this manager and filed reports and nothing was done. The district manager just made excuses and didn't know how to lead at all.

    Cons

    Good discount and the people who work there are usually great.
