Very dishonest and most unorganized company ever seen
Manager (Former Employee), TennesseeSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: none at all
Cons: no integrity
The information that the corporate and head officers in the company say and give directions to is very disorganized, no integrity, and fire people at will with no legitimate reason given. Even when you are running the store at a high level and every customer says the store looks the best, yet it's never good enough for certain people. If you are not – more... in with the "in crowd" you might as well leave or you will be forced to. Nobody ever returns a call or communicates anything, you might as well be talking to a wall. If you are at all communicative they don't like you and expect the store to continue to look trashy all the time. If you are about people and great culture, don't waste your time. as other people said, run, they don't care about you! – less

horrid experience
general manager (Former Employee), the southAugust 19, 2014
Pros: hours of operation
Cons: everything else
They know ZERO about running a retail operation or how to treat people. There answer to every issue is to fire people vs developing or coaching them. This place promises you the world then changes policies on a daily basis. They will screw you out of bonus by changing policies and they can't grasp that they are selling returns aka junk and most people – more... don't have time to constantly return stuff. As someone else here posted. Run for the hills, it's a trap and a joke. Even had a dm state "I don't know if this place will make it". Horrible. – less

Unprofessional, Lacking Organization, Belittling.
sales associate (Former Employee), richmond, kyAugust 5, 2014
Pros: more than minimum wage.
Cons: upper management, not enough people, not enough appreciation
This company came into Richmond with a bang, lots of hopes and promises were alluded to all who were sucked into the company's supposed charm. Upon working there employees began dropping like flies. There were far too many individuals in upper management attempting to be in charge, so lack of communication, honesty and trust prevailed. As time went – more... on, the worse the experience became. There is NO organization. They pull their employees into far too many directions at the same time, spreading them thin for days and then complain when morale begins descending. Not enough people to handle the task at hand. Those who worked extremely hard didn't get the credit they deserved, while others were placed on a pedestal for nothing. This place has a lot of potential, but going at the pace that they are, it's sure to run itself into the ground. The turnover rate shouldn't be so high for such a new business. – less

Growing company, ok job, very unorganized, management ok.
Part time sales (Current Employee), KentuckyJune 29, 2014
Pros: laid back atmosphere.
Cons: short breaks, low pay, not enough hours, no pay raises
This is a growing company but it is very unorganized. Management here is not the best but it could be better. This job is very laid back but can be stressful at times. Even being part time I wish part time workers can get more hours even with it being a small company with very little employees.

Exciting & Interesting
Customer Service/ Cashier (Current Employee), Kennesaw, GAJune 29, 2014
Pros: management/employee group pep talks before opening hours.
A typical day at work included interacting with customers, making sales, dealing with money regarding the cash registers, and organizing apparel. While working at Bargain Hunt I learned how to better deal with individuals in society. I also learned that there are so many different people with different personalities and meeting them all in a days work – more... can be challenging, but I am equipped to be kind to people while doing my job correctly all at once. Management is amazing at Bargain Hunt. They do their best to make everyone feel comfortable in their position. As management says "Teamwork makes the dream work. While being at Bargain for eight months, I connected with all of my co-workers in a positive and professional manner. The hardest part of my job is making sure that my team has everything management put as a requirement done in a timely fashion. The most enjoyable part of my job is to make sure every customer who comes through the workplace enters and leaves impressed. – less

Run for the hills!!!!
current employee (Current Employee), Hendersonville, tnMay 16, 2014
Pros: can't think of any
Cons: name it
Horrible!! Upper management only cares about their perks. Most all positions are part time and not enough hours to survive on!! They say sales are down so they have to cut everyone's hours, then they keep hiring people and giving them 8-9 hours a week! Rules only apply to certain employees. Miserable, most items are defective or used. Pay for anyone – more... other than upper management (who do nothing) sucks!!! If you apply and get hired, prepare to work like a grunt for minimum wage and very few hours a week. – less

Train wreck superstores
Management (Former Employee), TNMarch 30, 2014
Pros: learn how not to run a company
Cons: being desperate enough to work for them
Expected to sell junk other buyers have returned. Some of the products are good but 3/4 of it is broken, used, or a defective second. You can't have any pride in working around such a literal blind faith roulette wheel if quality merchandice. Upper management is a joke, rich guys with no people or leadership skills. The Senior Staff Frat of overly self – more... compensated task masters. Policies change like the weather and they choose who they enforce the policies with. All reactive never ever proactive. A dart without feathers! – less

Decent Place to Work
Cashier (Former Employee), Southaven, MSMarch 23, 2014
Pros: laid-back, pay, and associates
Cons: poor management
My first day on the job without any training, they threw me on the register by myself and I closed on a busy Friday night without knowing what to do and I did not have anyone to assist me because they were busy. Some of the staff members were ok and the pay was decent. It was very laid-back though and that's what I like about it. We were able to have – more... our cell phones on us in case of emergencies and we had decent breaks. The head manager was fantastic, but everyone below him was just there for the job. – less

Stable company, lacks direction
STORE MANAGER (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: benefits are decent
Cons: political
This is a growing company that is trying to become a major corporation with very little of the key basics in place to do so. The people are likable, but the direction is still evolving.

Growing Company, Small Culture!
Sales and Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee), Nashville, TNFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: advancement opportunities, competitive benefits, family oriented work environment
Cons: employee discount
This company is full of opportunities! It continues to grow every year but will always have its family oriented, small culture feel. Every day is a hands-on learning experience, learning from your managers and mentors to become a better person both at work and at home. Bargain Hunt cares about you and your FAMILY! That’s a BIG PLUS! Every day is different – more... and that’s exciting because I look forward to new projects to take on! Our retail stores are constantly on the move so the ability to work in a fast-pace environment is a must. I have learned that you must bring your A-GAME because things are always changing (i.e. sale this weekend, upcoming event, etc.) so you must be able to adapt and react quickly. I am very grateful to have found a great job before graduating college and I hope people will take the time to learn more about the great things Bargain Hunt has to offer. – less

Not a great company
Employee (Former Employee), TnJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: buys lunch christmas time
Cons: no growth, no employee recognizes toon
very unorganized . Tell you that you can advanced in the company but the only people moving up are the better skinned people, and the only excuse is they don't have enough experience but yet these are people who have been with the company since day 1, brings in everyone from their old company.

Ok money but not worth the hassle
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), TNJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: ok pay for management
Cons: everythingelse
This is a growing company with a lot of growing pains. They change management all the time and they switch there policy at will them want us to be ok with every switch. The company is still small and more like high school than a job they will gossip about everything that happens at the management level.

Horrible upper level management
Asst. Manager (Former Employee), HuntsvilleDecember 12, 2013
Pros: the money was good if you advanced
Cons: very time consuming and the upper management is horrid
I saw this company fire too many people who worked hard and produced daily. The senior staff as they called them, which were the high-ups changed their minds on a daily basis and expected you to keep up with it. Many times one contradicted the other. There is no job security with this company. I did learn a lot about management skills and how not to – more... treat people. I would never recommend working for this company. I cannot be emphatic enough about that. There were some good people in the company and it did allow me to use creative skills, but the lack of managerial support is impossible to overcome and again, watched too many hard working guys get axed for little things. – less

Great workplace from location, management to co-workers
Customer Service/Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Madison, TNOctober 11, 2013
Pros: having a job and learning different areas
Cons: non
This was my first job and I learned alot from Customer Service, Inventory, and working with customers and management. I loved all aspects of the job and willing to work whenever needed. I was very disappointed that the company decided to let me go not due to performance or productivity only due to being last hired.

I am a people person and get along – more... well with others. I would consider my self as a team player. I take directions well and I used my time wisely.

A typical day at work changed each day. I never new what to expect whether I would be on the sales floor or in the warehouse. I was flexible and didn't mind change. I also didn't mind working overtime or getting called in on my day off. I was just thankful to have a job.

I am eligible for re-hire. – less

Growing company with growing pains
Retail associate (Current Employee), AlabamaSeptember 5, 2013
Pros: chances to advance. discounts
Cons: low pay
This isn't a bad job for young people fresh in college. The company is young and still growing so whatever growing pains the company experiences you have to deal with them as well. The fun part is getting to see all the cool and fun products that come in the store. If you want to advance there are chances to do so.

Had a great time!
Cashier (Former Employee), Dalton, GAJune 10, 2013
Pros: flexible scheduling, good breaks
All of my managers were amazing! They helped you out and tried their best to work with your schedule. The people there were fun and it really feels like you have a second family. The work wasn't too bad, being a cashier, I liked getting to interact with my customers! The system is easy to work with and I had few problems learning protocols, etc. I think – more... a few hard things are dealing with bad customers and having to straighten at the end of busy days. In all, I loved working there! – less
