    To stressful hours changed if getting a. Visit or if we got a bad visit from regionals....no matter if you had plans it wasn't optional...long hrs......when you wk over night you expected to clean up what day left and plus 4 to 6 trucks a night plus clean and recover the store with about 18 associates per night...if you know nothing about retail then you will not understand but that's kinda of a night you need about 35 associates to complete, plus the bk of the building and parking lot must be cleaned.....then are manger will come in and act like you wad sitting in the office all night when everything didn't get complete...just treat people like they don't matter....

    Pros

    Meeting nice coworkers and getting a nice amount bonus. Sometimes management is willing to work with your schedule. Will hire anyone.

    Cons

    Instead of doing what the job specifies, store manager will have you doing their job. It’s not worth the pay we’re already receiving.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t have favorites with employees, try to accommodate everyone the same. If the floor is shorthanded it would be nice to have help, instead of management yelling at us to get it done
