Ground floor direct involvement
Stock Supervisor (Current Employee), Redmond, WANovember 19, 2014

Just an ok place to work
Furniture Supervisor/ Head of Furniture (Current Employee), Lakewood, CANovember 10, 2014
Pros: schedule flexibility with school or other job
Cons: not enough pay or hours
The best part about working for Cost Plus are the customers, they are very nice and easy to work with. Management is just ok, nothing to brag about. My co workers are nice. The hardest part of the job is helping 10 customers at a time when there's only 2 or 3 people scheduled. It is really hard to move up in this company and they don't pay that well, – more... they would rather hire from outside the company. – less

I have been working for this company almost 3 years and have tried to take full advantage of gaining skills and knowledge that I can use in future jobs. I would like to seek a job that I can see a future in.

Great store with good people; unrealistic hours and compensation
Sales/Stock Associate (Current Employee), virginiaSeptember 28, 2014
Cons: no healthcare
I truely enjoy the environment of World Market. The store at which I am employed has great employess and good mangers. I excelled at engaging and helping customers. A couple problems I had was the part-time under hours and low pay. With the inability to have a set schedule you were unable to get another part time job to compensate the lack of income. – more... This was discouraging and hard to accept. – less

great catagories is all I can say
Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: awesome grocery section, really neat seasonal items
Cons: usaully 1 manager and 1-2 employees to close 35k ft store, heavy furniture with little assistance to lift, often times load sits for days in back making warehouse unattainable.
everything is focused on capturing customer e-mails, even to the point of angering the customers. typical day you are running short on staffing, climbing over pallets of product to reach heavy furniture, often times a "team lift" is not possible as only one cashier, one sales person and one M.O.D are scheduled. Basic retail 101 does not exist.

the – more... most enjoyable part of the day is interacting with the customers who return because of the service you have given them. – less

Decent place to work if you are in management or above - typical retail environment
Former employee (Former Employee), MichiganSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: opportunity for advancement, relatively decent pay for retail
Cons: no work life balance or flexibility, poor pay/benefits for anyone under full time/management, ineffective district managers who use scare tactics and back their gm's even if they are corrupt
Having been in management, my time at World Market was typical of any retail store. Upper management expects you to put your work first and family second. There are opportunities to advance from within, however they are not readily offered/explained. If you want to advance, you have to vocalize your desires to management and fight for promotions.

It's an okay environment
Orderfill (Former Employee), Stockton, CASeptember 17, 2014
The employees there are more helpful than the leads/supervisors.
Sometimes it's hard to hit production.
Supervisors and leads play favoritism.

Awesome Management!
Sales Leader (Former Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 3, 2014
Pros: great management, positive work environment
Cons: minimum wage, not enough hours, rude demanding customers
I loved working here because I worked with a great set of people. Management is wonderful.
I feel like they listened to my concerns, and took action.
It was a retail environment which includes rude customers, and unsatisfied customers.
I felt for the amount of work I should have been compensated more but it is an entry-level position with high turn – more... around. – less

Large, high volume retail
Beverage Department Manager (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAAugust 13, 2014
A typical day at work consisted primarily of interacting with customers both on the sales floor and at point of sale. Maintenance of paper records and vendor contracts and the upkeep and creation of displays were also integral to the job. Since the position was in retail, there were a wide variety of employees with varying levels of skill and education. – more... At my particular store, however, several of the employees and supervisors had been in the location for multiple years which lent a sense of stability to the whole operation. – less
