Wholesale/Retail Order Filler (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – December 23, 2013
Was an enjoyable job. Work a minimal of 10 hours a day Monday through Friday. Excellent work environment, great co-workers. All employees, managers, co-workers looked out and helped each other. Work was more like a family working together. Most difficult part of the job was not losing your mind from boredom, for at times it was very slow. Very regular hours. Also had a great benefits package, 401k, medical and dental. Honestly, one of the best places to work. Very blessed to have had the opportunity to work for the company and with the people I worked alongside.
benefits through the company. excellent co-workers
worked inside a warehouse with now heat or air conditioning.

Manager (Former Employee) – Dickson, TN – July 26, 2015
Started 84 as a manager trainee and worked my way to store manager before new owner ship took over company had great job security and a strong back. I don't know if the company has gotten its strength back or not. I learned much from this company and it has helped me with growth as a business leader.
If you dont like hard work or long hrs not for you
Manager Trainee (Former Employee) – Virginia – March 20, 2015
hired with the understanding I would need to learn the field (since I'm an IT grad, and not a contractor. Area Manager said he was hiring me because I was a college grad so I could learn the field. Then, I was fired less than 6 months later with my only given reason being that I wasn't familiar enough with the industry, regardless of having passed all tests I had been given to that point.
Co-Manager (Former Employee) – PA – August 10, 2015
Old school managerial hierarchy and principles Terrible work conditions (Stifling in the summer, freezing in the winter, dust, etc.) Outdated software and technology Long work days, and inefficient work schedules (Off days were random such as Tuesday and Saturday, not enough time to live outside of work) Work started at 7 and ended at 6, typical work week was 50+ hours Money was okay due to tremendous overtime and opportunities to hit sales goals (Personal goals and store goals)
Overall, I would not recommend this job, however I am happy to have gotten the experience in such conditions and circumstances. I really liked my coworkers also.
