Getting ready to leave.... they do not pay $8+ dollars like it says, starts at 7.35 hrly and you do the work of two... constantly running from cashier assistance back to stocking shelves / cleaning. This is a big company but pay very small wages for all they expect of you. They can afford to pay minimum wage!!! Turn over is high due to lack of hours, poor pay and doing the work of two for below adverage pay!

Worst company to work for EVER. They don't care about their employees, they literally work you like slaves, always got called in on my off days but they didn't wanna give you overtime (irony right?!?!) My manager at my location was highly unprofessional, lazy & rude. She would yell & scold at you if something went wrong in front of customers instead of pulling you to the side. & she ALWAYS sat in the office not doing a thing. Registers are at least 73 years old so they always crashed or the pin pad for cards always froze! Pay is HORRIBLE, I was a FT employee barely getting 30 hours I have a child to support you can't make a living off of that. Upper management expects too much to be done in little time. You're either at the store by yourself or with one other person & it was constantly busy so nothing really got accomplished. Very money hungry company that doesn't care about you or your safety. Oh & if another neighboring store needs help your manager doesn't consent with you, you're automatically sent to help out at the other store. Do not work here unless you're desperate.

The company is a joke! Hiring racist managers and they discussed ALL employees personal info with customers just whoever would listen. I left because of the turnover and unsatisfactory level of higher management. Your not appreciated at all

I got promoted as soon as my hire probation was up. I was told multiple times I'd get another promotion after that probation was up. Here I am 3 months after my probation is up with nothing. Come to find out a cashier is making 50 cents more than me. I was hired before them.
