Pros: discounts on food and merchandise

MANAGEMENT WAS ALWAYS VERY RESPECTFUL.
THEY TRAINED YOU UNTIL YOU GOT IT RIGHT, NEVER MAKING YOU FEEL BAD IF YOU COULDN'T CATCH ON. THEY LET YOU CROSS TRAIN IN DIFFERENT AREAS TO SEE WHAT YOU LIKED TO DO BEST.
I LEARNED HOW TO SET UP A DISPLAY IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS, I LEARNED ABOUT HOW TO WRAP GIFTS CORRECTLY.
MY CO-WORKERS WERE SO KIND AND FRIENDLY.
THE – more... HARDEST PART OF THE JOB WAS GETTING THE TRUCK UNLOADED AND ORGANIZED IN A SMALL SPACE. – less

Retail Sales Clerk (Former Employee), Rosenberg, TXDecember 9, 2014
This was my favorite job, really great place to work. This is a company where they are very willing to teach you other positions so you can get your hours. The hardest part of this job is actually dealing with some of the employees . The best part is the recognition you get from management

Enjoyable country environment, great staff
Hostess (Former Employee), Fort Wayne, INDecember 9, 2014
Pros: the staff i worked with, the enviornent and the discounts
Cons: not many hours available to work
A typical day at work consisted of me coming in and making sure that the hostess stand was stocked and cleaned so that I was fully prepared for my shift. I learned how to keep my servers happy by seating in a specific rotation. When it was busy and there weren't many open tables I learned how to retain from seating certain tables so that we could seat – more... the parties that came into the restaurant. I worked with an amazing group of people. They took their job seriously but were enjoyable to be around. The hardest part of my job was seeing guests I got to know, that had been regulars going downhill with their health. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to see guests leave with a smile on their face and the employees leave with a smile on their face. – less

Server (Former Employee), Morrisville, NCDecember 3, 2014
Obviously this is not my dream job but the company definitely gets enough business to pay the bills. All managers handle work with care and precision. They do not tolerate B.S. and have a very honest belief about work. You should either be working or you should be at home.
