production was easy but sometimes unrealistic goals were expected
merchandiser (Former Employee) – Jackson, TN – May 9, 2015
I wouldn't work there or advise other people too. You get paid every two weeks..if you happen to get hired on a week they get paid you have to wait three weeks before getting your check. The women there are completely childish, they compete and harrass you over everything. It smells bad there. You can run into moldy items, black widows a lot of spiders and they even had snakes before. You deal with a lot of digging into bags that were donated so you don't really know if your going to get dirty items suck as with body waste on them and anything from throw up to bloody panties. In the winter its super cold in the summer its extremely hot!
free saftey lunches if you get through the whole month accident free.
childish drug using people, almost all the people who work their were in rehab or on drugs.
Utilities (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – March 14, 2015
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.
workers discount on stuff that was already cheap in the beginning
Excellet opportunity to experiece how the thrit store industry works
PRODUCTION CREW (Former Employee) – Daytona Beach, Florida – September 2, 2014
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.
no incentive to produce, low pay for really hard work

Pricer/Tagger (Former Employee) – jackson tn – June 4, 2014
I love working with customers they are very friendly. I learned how to sort. The hardest part about the job when we had to unload the truck. I enjoyed working with this company everyone is friendly and willing to help out.
it is a good work place but the management and coworkers are dishonest
