Expect hours and days to fluxuate weekly. No room for advancement, but everyone who works there are friendly. Be willing to learn on a constant basis, products, sales, coupons, etc. Other than that, the company is fantastic if you're in school, they are willing to work with you on hours.
Very enjoyable place to work, great employees, high value of employees.

I had a great District Manager who taught what it meant to be a manager and leader in work and in life. I was able to spend time with individual employees through hiring, training and motivation.
