A New Experience
Auto Service Center Senior Sale Associate (Former Employee), Scott AFB, ILAugust 19, 2015
Pros: Flexible time schedule
Cons: Could not please all the customers.
I was lucky to have a set schedule when I was hired. I had no problems covering my co-workers shifts when something arises. When the front of the store was short, we helped out the cashiers. Management was awesome, and when issues came about, we were able to come together with a solution. Co workers were awesome and welcoming, along with the guys that worked in the back of the store with the vehicles.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Fort Leonard Wood, MOAugust 17, 2015
most of the day was at the register. Every few hours I had to clean the coffee area, make new coffee and make sure there were enough supplies out for the customers. From time to time I had to help customers with finding a product or place an order for something we didn't have in store. at the end of the day I had to count my drawer and make sure the money in it matched the amount indicated in the system.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), BelgiumJuly 9, 2015
Not a terrbile job, but one that somewhat sucked. Bad pay, most people on base dont like the company and take it out on you. Benefits are useless to most employees who already have free coverage from tricare.

Store Associate (Current Employee), Montgomery, ALJuly 8, 2015
Pros: Meeting new people from all over the world
Cons: shorts
Each working day different from other days some are long and some are short. Typical day when we are not helping customers we are stocking, building, and checking inventory for anything new to be put out.
You learn something everyday and learn a lot from customers in the process. What I have learned that customers always first, listen to what they are asking, and give it you all to provide help, answers, or merchandise for your customers. Customers who leaves the store with a smile and satisfied with the service tends to come back for repeat service as a store you want that.
Managers at my job are wonderful people and enjoying with them each day. They are good what they do and they make it easy to learn from them in tough situations. They provide that sense of support and always try to maintain contact throughout the day should their assistance is need. During my time at my current job I have worked with managers who has shown great deal of support for their associates. Management I'm working with nothing but a pleasure working with them and I have learn a lot from them.
My co-workers are wonderful people I have the pleasure working with. It has been awhile since I have worked with my current co-workers and they a blessing to work with. Working with them make working a lot easier and a lot more fun that helps tremendously on morale and for customers.
Everyday has a chance of you being pulled in many different directions and helping others at the same time. It is difficult when you are short handed and trying to provide assistance to customers as well. – more... During hard times like that best thing I can do is one step, one person at a time.
At the end of the day when a customers or customers you have helped comes up to you smiles and thanks you for your time that is the most enjoyable part of the job. Knowing you have provided a wonderful shopping experience, provided answers for their questions, and when they leave their merchandise in had and with a smile there is not better joy then getting a smiling thank you from customers. – less

Wonderful to work with
Food Service Worker (Former Employee), Fort Huachuca, AZJuly 2, 2015
When I had a problem with a manager putting me down for hours that she knew I could not work the company moved me to another job in another building. They were great at understanding my daycare problem that I didn't have any until 1630, so they allowed my son to wait the 10 minutes in the seating area while the sitter made his way across the base.

Always learning new things and a chance to be creative.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Fort Drum, NYMay 29, 2015
After processing the incoming clothing--unpacking the boxes, pricing each item, hanging them up on the right belts sorted by department--we would take them out onto the floor. We had a chance to be creative when we had to dress manikins and organize the displays. I was always learning knew things like how to color coordinate, how to shrink-wrap packaged clothing, and how to use the telephones on the floor to make announcements or to call for another employee. I also got to volunteer to help with a few of the Back To School Fashion Shows. I think that the most enjoyable part of the job would have to be interacting with the customers.
