Hard work = success... and cake day!!
Order Picker, Backup Team Leader, Move Crew (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKNovember 19, 2014
Pros: no copay clinic visits, timed breaks, set schedule, christmas bonuses
Cons: occurrences, wear and tear on clothihg and shoes
Working in the warehouse can be a strenuous job. Most days it's like getting paid to work out. The warehouse is fast paced but it's easy to learn the different tasks that are expected of you. I enjoy working with so many different people with so many personality differences. I actually enjoy going to work and want to be present in order to get the overtime! – more... I would have to say that the hardest part of the job is to build Personal Paid Time Off as it accrues only 4.5 hours each month. PPTO is used for everything to family emergencies, sick days, car problems, and doctor visits. There are so many opportunities for advancement as well as positions if you work hard and are flexible. There are several perks of being an employee. One of the sweetest perks: "cake day" once a month to celebrate birthdays. – less

Cashier/sales (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKNovember 11, 2014
Pros: pay rate
Cons: there is none
I love this job! But take note if you are lazy don't apply. It is very fast paced and the manager expects a lot out of you, after all you need to earn your pay. This is the HL on 71st, Gary is the manager, he is great to work for. He will not tolerate drama, which makes the a special place to work. NO DRAMA...15.00 an hour for full time and 11.00 an – more... hour for part time. – less

Hard work and long hours
Co-Manager (Current Employee), Kirkwood, MONovember 9, 2014
the hardest part about the job is the hours they want their managers and co-managers to put in each is at least 55- 60 hours a week and it gets increased to 70- 75 a week during the holiday season. The enjoyable part of the job is the different types of people I work with and meet throughout the day.

Great family company
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee), Killeen, TXNovember 5, 2014
Pros: they pay very well
Cons: can't take time off during nov to dec.
Its a great place to work. Most the time we set merchandise from each holiday months ahead of time to be ready. Everyone is very friendly who works there. The hardest time is during the Xmas season because you cant take time off because its the busiest time of year. The managers seems to know what they are doing and very understanding.

Over all I enjoyed learning new things. Greeting customers with a smile and a "Hello.'
Certified framer (Former Employee), Bartlett, TNNovember 3, 2014
Pros: we had free lunch break.
Cons: health care benefits were offered.
The start of the day was to go through your department, to be sure that everything was in its place. Help customers with finding what they are looking for. Management was helpful if we had questions. I loved my co-workers, made it a great place to work. The hardest thing is to comfort a customer that is outraged and it has nothing to do with you. Meeting – more... new and old customers each day. Very pleasant. – less

Fun place to work if your crafty.
Cashier/Customer Service/Sales (Former Employee), Temple, TXNovember 2, 2014
Pros: crafty fun
Cons: only part time
I am a crafts person so this was a great job for me. The store I worked had great management. I loved working on the floor with the customers. You have your own section which you order for and keep straight. This was only part time job and I needed a full time job which I got and kept working here because I liked it so well.

A Great Place to Work
Certified Framer (Former Employee), Dothan, ALOctober 31, 2014
Pros: free lunches at holidays & special occasions. cold drinks during the summer on freight days.
Cons: short lunches. 30 mins at the store i worked at.
A typical day at work was always pretty fun and all my co-workers were great. Management was super easy to work with as well. The hardest part about the job was it's retail. Most customers are good but you would have a few that you just couldn't please no matter what. Anyone that works in retail or with the public will experience this at some point. – more... I found that even though this was the hardest it was was also the most enjoyable when you knew you satisfied the customer and they became repeat customers. – less

Store Clerk (Former Employee), Glen Allen, VAOctober 30, 2014
Pros: na
Cons: na
Did not like it there, it was a christian store and the management and the co workers were very rude. Did not have any good experiences with this store at all. They cut my hours to one day a week for no reason. It was difficult emotionally, to work in the atmosphere, with some of the workers there.
