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 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

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 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.

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.

ok job
Store Manager (Former Employee), Piqua, OHAugust 24, 2015
Pros: job, steady check
Cons: 6 day work week. Lack of labor support
Work Life Balance can be an issue with this company. Pay is a bit on the low side. You will likely spend several hours working by yourself on many days.

So Far, My Favorite.
Keyholder/ Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Duncanville, TXAugust 24, 2015
Pros: Fun environment
Cons: The hours
I absolutely love this job. I have made a bond with nearly half the daily customers considering we are located in a neighborhood. The only slight down fall is I am in college and the scheduling to my school life can be complicated. I am a lead sales, which includes closing and or opening, being the MOD, and also doing deposits.

Cashier (Former Employee), Seaford, DEAugust 24, 2015
Pros: Great hours
Cons: Working nights
A very fast paced experience. A lot of multitasking required. Have to have great customer service skills even in the toughest situations. The coworkers are great however there was only one cashier and one manager working at anytime but the managers are great. They are very helpful and patient.I learned how to better interact with customers and increased my multitasking skills. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my coworkers who were very pleasant.
