    Pros

    Great & Fun environment with a diverse group of friendly people. Flexible Schedule. 10% Discount card.

    Cons

    Management makes you ask every single person if they would like to apply for a Mastercard. Even if the customer has a Mastercard in their hand and about to pay with it. If you did not ask her, you would be penalized.

    Advice to Management

    Go easy on credit cards please. Give more hours please. Increase the commission on Mastercard sales please.

    I worked at Walmart (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun co-workers and provided free water

    Cons

    HORRIBLE management that show clear favoritism
    Managers DO NOT care about you, I was left in garden center during the summer during extremely busy hours putting 20+ bags of soil into multiple cars while the line would be 7 cars long.
    They would everything BUT actually help you (dance around the topic and pretend like they were making calls or trying to find someone to help)
    Was left without a break for an entire 8 hours because they couldn't find someone to cover me during it.
    Some managers extremely rude

    Advice to Management

    be more there for your new hires, throwing them on to the sales floor and expecting results will get you no where.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    working with friendly co workers and pay of $26 per hour

    Cons

    Store manager has no idea of operating a store and only wants managers that follow her around and agree to anything she says which is wrong 90% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that know how to operate a store, Thats why most of the stores are shrinking out big time.
