Any place you go you will find difficult people to work with. Not all Management is bad. This is a very good company to work for if you plan to grow with them. You will get plenty of Customer Service experience. I have been with GW for 3yrs and it is hard work for little pay. What is your reason for taking the job in the first place? To make a difference I hope. We have a mission and that is to put people to work. Our stores make $ to provide our Career Centers with computers to help ANYONE find a job. The Career Ctrs also has classes you can take. If you take pride in your work and yourself you will benefit. If you are a young punk and lazy this is not the place for you. Please don't waste GW's time. I hope this has helped some of you make a decission.

A comment on the comment: GW is not concerned with putting people to work, they are concerned with their bottom line, pure and simple. The company fell short in it's budget goals for November and december 2012 and they are now in a panic because the top managers did not get bonuses. What other company encourages it's employees to raise the proces on items they control to make more? They control 100% of the price points and they simply want more for less. My store manager treats his associates like cogs and could care less if they stay a day or a year, there are always more people looking for work and if they are desperate enough to work for 7.50 an hour, we will take them! There is a 94% turnaround rate....that should tell you something.
