    I have been working at Winners part-time

    Pros

    Very flexible scheduling for students.
    Nice coworkers, makes work more bearable.
    Employee discount is OK since Winners is an off-price retail store.

    Cons

    Management does not care about you, they only care about doing their job and getting paid for it. With that, it gives a tense and sometimes frustrating work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your team more. The store will not run smoothly if you don't work as a team.

    I worked at Winners part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had no experience working at all, let alone in customer service, as this was my first job. Winners had a great environment to learn the ropes of customer service and retail.

    Cons

    The managers at the location I worked at were not very approachable.

    I worked at Winners full-time

    Pros

    Good equal opportunity employer. Promotes within company.

    Cons

    Full-time workers were only guaranteed minimum 33 hours a week at slightly above minimum wage. Somewhat hard to budget with unstable salary. But that is the nature of retail everywhere in the market

    Advice to Management

    I had really good managers that encouraged us and told us we did great job. Keep that up as not always easy with long and overwhelming work days.

    Fun job if you have a good team of employees and enjoy being very busy. In my case was an entry-level position just to get me some experience for my resume.

    Cons

    -scheduling was a disaster
    -taking days off - required to find someone to switch your shift with even if you requested a day off 2 weeks in advance
    -chaotic workplace, managers were not helpful
    -training was much too short and left new employees confused and not well-prepared
