Everything that glitters is not gold
Store Manager (Former Employee), MassachusettsMay 20, 2014
Pros: the potential to make decent money.
Cons: favoritism/unprofessional when it came to upper management/lack of respect for employees
I was hired and put into the store with only a week and a half of training, but expected to know everything. Every company is run differently so I was unsure about what I could do and couldn't do when it came to merchandising. I felt I had no kind of support when it came to the questions I had. Over all I have to say this is one of the worst jobs I – more... have had. – less

More like hanging out with friends who need a little help rather than work.
Direct Care Staff (Former Employee), Shenandoah, PAApril 13, 2014
A typical day was interacting with individuals with special needs. I have learned that those individuals are quite capable of doing ordinary everyday tasks and shouldn't be pushed aside or ignored because of a disability. The co-workers were all very good people and friends. They made it fun to come to work. The hardest part of the job was becoming – more... attached to some of the individuals. The best part is all of the new friendships I have made and the many new people I have met. – less

Not the best warehouse
General Warehouse Laborer (Current Employee), Woonsocket, RIApril 6, 2013
Pros: work with shoes
Cons: never get treated with respect, no benifits, $8.50hr.
typical day starts and finishes with all aspects of receiving product an prepping to deliver.
I was never taught how work in the company I had to self teach.
Management left warehouse and the acting assistant foreman was temporarily promoted to Manager.
The co-workers could care less about the company but were a good crew too work with.
Hardest part – more... is the warehouse, its falling apart and in need of a lot of fixing, also Office Manager plays favorites. – less

Physically and Mentally Stressful
Warehouse Employee (Current Employee), Woonsocket, RIApril 3, 2013
Pros: store discounts
Cons: see above.
Upper Management is unable and unwilling to let warehouse management run without micro-managing. Little to no advancement opportunities with little pay. Motivation is always questionable based on a lack of mutual respect between staff and upper management.

Pros: providing customers the product they need

A typical day at work consist of marking new sales and preparing new advertisement.

As a manager of my peer filled staff I became very efficient at keeping my personal life and work seperated. I also liked the relationship status between my vendors and I that was created. All around it was an eye opening experience showing me that management is my strong suit.
