An okay place
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Tucson, AZAugust 28, 2015
Pros: Good pay. Fun at time.
Cons: No training, rude customers, did not feel welcomed by coworkers
This was my first job in customer service. Manager was a little bit too hard on me for being new to the work place and just learning how things are to go in a business like this. Did not train me very well.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Olive Branch, MSAugust 27, 2015
I started with this company in the lowest position a sales clerk. With the eager to want to assist my Store Manger in checking in Vendors and paperwork I quickly worked my way up to a third key position. I continued to watch myself grow all the way to a Store Manager.

It's OK to help you get on your feet
Sale associate,crew,cashier (Current Employee), NC Winston salemAugust 27, 2015
Pros: Test your patience, relaxed on slow day
Cons: Very low pay, assistant managers don't do enough as they want you to share the load of their work
I enjoy the job on a relaxed day not so busy days& running from cash register to stock to customer and then cash register then putting back what they didn't want gets annoying very fast in all if you like – more... people you may enjoy it my big issue is the pay is low as a crew member your responsibility is to much and assistant managers don't do enough they tended to use lower payed people I wouldn't mind if they paid more – less

Discouraging work environment.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Blue Mountain, MSAugust 27, 2015
When I began working here, I was babysitting at the same time. I was only scheduled to work 5 hours at a time and they would not give me any day shifts on Saturdays. I asked for them and only got one out – more... of the 3 months I worked there. I was bombarded with a ton of chores to do all in a 5 hour time limit. My last day scheduled to work, I had to call in due to family situations and my boss replied, "We got it!" and hung up! It was a difficult time for me because I am so use to being in a happy, loving environment instead of a harsh, snoody one. – less

Overworked under paid compsny
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Cedar Rapids, IAAugust 26, 2015
Pros: Faithful Customers
Cons: Poor upper management
Disorganized company to work for, inconsistencies with company rules. Lack of education equals poor management. Over worked, under paid. Dishonest upper management. Not all store managers are team players. Increased wages means less hours worked.
