Not what it appears or lead you on to believe
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), GeorgiaJuly 14, 2014
Job security and advancement is not what they speak of when hiring you. Compensation is very low even for management level, and some managers are not management material.

Ok place to work
Cashier (Former Employee), Morristown, TNJuly 14, 2014
I truly enjoyed working with the many different kinds of people who came into the store. Even the mean ones. However, when you go through 6 Managers in a matter of one year, you know there is a problem with the company and its hiring process. I learned how to manage time more efficiently and deal with difficult customers and keeping my cool at the same – more... time. – less

Terrible.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Hudson, MAJuly 14, 2014
Low payroll budget, limited positions, and unfair wages. This store location along with many others has been closed and was an undesirable employment.

Summary
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Williamsburg RdJuly 12, 2014
Pros: being in managment and being able to hve my voice heard
Cons: hours
A typical day at work would be for me to clock in and after I clocked in if I was closing to count the safe and if I was opening to open the store and gather all paperwork from the previous business day. After that was complete I either got on register until my next employee came in or I started working on things that came off the truck, that needed – more... to be put out on the floor. – less

Crazy Place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDJuly 11, 2014
Pros: small store discount
Cons: no health care, fighting thieves
The managers were always late to open the store. The store was constantly getting robbed and we were expected to try and stop the thieves our self. We never got our breaks on time and I often had to pull double shifts because we were short staffed.

Nice work place
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Vidalia, LAJuly 10, 2014
Its a good place to work that isn't fast-paced. Get paid every week which is good. But nothing really change much unless its seasonal and the routine is daily work is the same everyday. It really does make you feel apart of a team and a family.

Productive workplace
Assistant Manager, Cashier, Stock (Former Employee), River Rouge, MIJuly 10, 2014
Pros: family oriented, close to public service offices
Cons: they expected me to know and do what the manager didn't even know
Doing paperwork, running the register, stock, running the store by myself until someone comes in. I have learned all the retail experience that I have. Some of the managers that I had were very good, others used me as a scapegoat. My co-workers were mostly great especially the ones that I trained. The hardest part of the job was keeping busy when everything – more... was done. I enjoyed when everything runs smoothly during the work day. – less
