Pros: 3 breaks per 8 hour shift, moderate pay, chances to move up.
Cons: union, poor managerial skills, disruptive behavior from co-workers sometimes, lackluster effort from management, lack of care from the store's district manager in general, dirty store, lazy whiny people
This store that I have been at for almost a year now has done nothing but screw everybody over. They're understaffed, unorganized and they create a strict, hostile working environment for everybody on the front end. Overall chaotic and would never go back. Typical days include standing for 8 hours behind a register and taking orders from managers. I – more... learned how to have patience and understanding for people's situations. I absolutely loved my co-workers though. They basically became a second family for me; I met some good people there. The hardest part of the job was trying not to lose my cool when the managers boss me around like I'm an animal. Lastly, the most enjoyable part of the job was going home at the end of the day... It was not enjoyable for the most part. – less
