Former Cashier (Former Employee) – Jackson, TN – January 18, 2017
Management sucks! They are very rude at times. Don't care or value their employees. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the customers daily. The job is very easy. Management shows a lot of favoritism. Point system for attendance sucks. You get 3 points you're out. Stuck up managers and supervisors are very childish. If you did your job well you do everybody elses. Supervisors do what they want while others are working their butts off! Would not reccommend this job to anyone!
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Jackson, TN – July 1, 2016
No raises and a day spent with a manager standing over you demanding you do more. Manager has favorites and if you don kiss butt you won't last. If one of the favorites don't like you, they set you up to get fired. People stealing and no one cares unless they want to get rid of them. People donate stuff with blood and bugs and you have to touch without gloves. If you do work here, don't talk to anyone because everyone is out to get you if it means they can run to the boss and get patted on the head.
You can't trust anyone and no money for hard work.
Supervisor/Cashier (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – January 12, 2017
i loved the job and the people that I worked with. We felt like family. it was very productive in the day time but at night it was more calm and i was always able to recover the store for the next morning.
Racker (Former Employee) – Jackson, TN – November 10, 2016
it sucked because 20 racks a day is complete nonsense. a lot of past employers agreed that was the hardest part. the best part was meeting some new friends there, and i learned dont trust anybody, cause they will turn their back on u
it is a good work place but the management and coworkers are dishonest

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
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.
