Pros: some friendly employees, direct deposit, convenient to shop at, 10 minute breaks are paid
Cons: healthcare and benefits, micromanagement, harassment, no discounts, short breaks, short hours, rude customers and managers, impossible to excel unless assistant manager
I worked here for about a year.
I advanced to a keyholder after around 4 months.
Most of management was ok, some were not. Micromanagement seemed to be an issue with some new people.
Some cashiers were lazy and obnoxious just like the customers and others were hard-working and nice.
It was a family-type environment, but there was diversity and most – more... people were friendly.
A lot of hard work, if you're working upfront or if you're working in the back. Customers were disrespectful, demeaning, and always insisted on trying to steal your cart or merchandise.
I usually only got 1 or 2 10-minute breaks, even over an 8 hour shift.
Can be very fast-paced and emotionally/physically draining.
The pay was atrocious and we couldn't go over 30 hours a week. Health benefits were a joke.
No employee discounts.
Maybe increase your products or prices a little and don't hire so many people, so that some of us could be full-time.
I liked working here before being screwed over.
The only way you're going to be paid is if you're management.
Other than that, love shopping there and love the low prices!
Hope corporate solves these issues so that current employees stay... – less
