My work day
Loss Prevention/ Auditor (Current Employee), St. LouisApril 10, 2015
Pros: Making sure things are safe
Cons: Can tend to be a dangerous job
My typical day at work. I go in at my time scheduled arriving at least 30 mins to 45 mins early. I check out the cleanness of the store, make sure that everyone that is schedule to work is there and ready to began the day. I check employees uniforms to make sure they are neatly pressed and clean and name badge is correctly affixed on the right side of the their shirt where it's visible to see by the customers and myself. Second I walk around the store making sure that all high theft items are tagged , and also the low theft items as well. Merchandise is properly on the shelves neatly arranged and easy access for customers. Third I got to the back office to gather my paper work for the day, also making sure that the security camera's are working properly and are scanning the store as they should. Last I make sure that all my cashier' have enough change and singles, and also bags for merchandise. After that I make my rounds outside the store as well making sure all trash is away from the door and parking lot and shopping carts are at easy access to customers.

A freindly and productive place to work that I enjoy greatly!
Associate (Current Employee), Pinedale, WYApril 9, 2015
Pros: Free lunches
Cons: Not being able to get 40 hours a week
A typical day of work consits of helping custumers find what they are looking in the friendliest and most efficient way possible. Along with checking custumers out and doing returns when needed.
There are days of the week when we recieve store iventory and on those days we unload and stock shelves as well as cashier and help costumers when needed.
I have learned alot about team-work within the work place knowing that team work is what is neccesary in making a company work smoothly and effectively.
My management team is awesome,they are constantly showing me how to provide the best service and give my very best at all times.
My co-workers are also a big part in helping acheive what needs to be done and make work fun at the same time.
The hardest part of the job is having to do multipile tasks at the same time.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the people and work envirionment. I could not ask for better!

Hard work
Training Store Manager (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INApril 8, 2015
Pros: Left alone unless not making the sales
Cons: work/life balance
Never ending chaos. Rely on a staff of poor character people. No payroll to assist in running the store. The company has a lot of opportunity, not many people stick around to see the store successful. It definitely takes a lot of hard work to keep the store operational. One person drops the ball, the whole store turns to chaos.

Customer Service & Cashier (Former Employee), Shelbyville, TNApril 8, 2015
Pros: good people
Cons: bad management
Disgrace of a company, was fired while pregnant (About a month) because i had to go to the emergency room because i was showing signs of miscarrying. I never called out, and always came in when they needed me to. I stayed late and came in early to help my coworkers. The lady who fired me stepped down 2 weeks later... it got up to 105 degrees in the store and they still wouldn't fix our air and we weren't allowed to open our doors for air....

This is a place for young or single people because it's hard to raise a family while working here.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAApril 7, 2015
Pros: Company buy in
Cons: No breaks, low pay, long hours, and high demand from management
It was very hard trying to manage the store and raise a family, all the hours at the low pay was driving me crazy. The best thing about the job was meeting new people. The worst thing about the job was the low pay.

Cut Throat Retail Company
Team Member/Cashier (Former Employee), Stratford, CTApril 6, 2015
Pros: not much honestly none it is a j.o.b (just over broke)
Cons: There is nothing good enough.
The work was fulfilling and labor intensive and you need to be at the top of your game to survive. it has unrealistic expectations of people to hourly clear a truck of merchandise and monitor the entire store for theft. and in the end they will fire you for a simple mistake with no mercy or pity.
