Atypical, odd, and shady place to work at
Utilities (Former Employee), Memphis, TNMarch 14, 2015
Pros: workers discount on stuff that was already cheap in the beginning
The security is horrible as there were robberies from employees as well as customers at least once a week and it was known that many of the workers enjoyed lazing around and had very shady business going on while working their jobs.

Good job for entry level worker
Sorter/Hanger (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLFebruary 25, 2015
The management was not very professional. The work was very basic but the crew was very productive and supportive. It was an experience and taught a lot of patience.

Pros: laid back
Cons: favoritism, not good management
I did not like working for them. There was favoritism. I did like the customers that were there regularly. I got keys to open and close the store within almost 6 months.

Excellet opportunity to experiece how the thrit store industry works
PRODUCTION CREW (Former Employee), Daytona Beach, FloridaSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: the customers
Cons: no incentive to produce, low pay for really hard work
Hardest physical job I ever had. Objective was to place as much product on the floor as possible within a 8 hr shift. Two 15min breaks and 30min lunch. My first experience in production labor, hard work.

Co workers were good people who all worked hard for min wage, not a penny more. No real incentive to produce beyond a "good job" comment rarely given by management. I was able to see potential in some of my co workers...wasted on the production line.

Biggest disappointment...donations that came in the back door never to make to the floor. Expensive high ticket items "disappeared". It was obvious what was going on but no one spoke up. Most people donating believing the AMVETS were benefiting when in reality they received a minimal 20% of profit.

Best part of the Job...The customers! What a variety of people, from the regulars to the first timers. it was my pleasure to have met them all.

The most enjoyable part of my job are the customers satisfaction.
