Cashier (Current Employee), Sterling, VA – March 29, 2013
Pros: 30% employee discount
Cons: no guaranteed end time for night shift, disagreeable staff
A typical day for my position involves exchanging goods for money, providing customer service, taking future orders, then cleaning. I learned how to operate a cash register and how to set shelves. Management has little experience and unsuitable traits to run a reputable store. The co-workers come in two varieties: calm and agreeable to be around or – more... cliquish and complaining. Despite the large workload thrust upon you, the hardest part is interacting with the staff. My favorite duty is inflating mylar balloons. – less

Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Fairview Heights, IL – July 30, 2014
Pros: you get an employee discount
Cons: no possiblity of moving up and flucuation in hours
You come in and are given a task or job to complete or you are the main cashier. If you are the main cashier you are the last person the customer sees when they leave the store, so smile and have a postitve attitude to insure the customer had a good shopping experience. If you are on the floor you will probably be given frieght to be put out, a planogram – more... to be reset, or moving merchandise. The hardest part is getting to know the store, for some people, people always are asking where things are in the store it is important and cofident you know what is sold in your store. The most enjoyable part is helping the customer find what they are looking for and making their party the best it can be. – less
Very fun place to work, particularly if you enjoyed working with and for the public

Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee), Santa Ana, CA – July 25, 2014
Cons: not much work hours are given
A typical day at work would depend on what the strongest skill one has. For example, if you know how to arrange merchandise according to instructions you work on the floor and if one is fast with money your place would be as a cashier. As you work there you learn how to inflate a balloon, be a cashier, and help customers with questions. The effort shown – more... is the tool to get managers to teach you more skills. I love my co-workers. It is a fun environment to work in and they all are friendly. We know when to work and when to have fun but the job always gets done. The hardest part of the job would be not getting as much hours as wanted. The enjoyable part is meeting new people, the co-workers, and the environment. – less
Personalization Specialist - Team Lead (Current Employee), Brentwood, CA – July 25, 2014
Pros: benefits for full time workers are good
Cons: pay isn't great for amount of work expected
There is a lot expected of you for low pay. I was given a "promotion" with no raise. Management does not seem to care about the employees, they just expect more than is possible to complete in a shift. Human resources does not respond to complaints. Could be a fun work environment with better management and better pay.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), West Melbourne, FL – July 22, 2014
Pros: cool treats for breaks and interesting team members.

A typical day at work would be dressing up in a costume and selling costumes and accessories to customers.. I learned creativity in creating a Halloween costume for customers. Management was fun and rewarding. Co-workers were fun and creative. The hardest part of the job was climbing tall ladders to retrieve Halloween masks. The enjoyable part of the – more... job was dressing up in a different costume everyday. – less
Halloween costumes, balloons and highschool grads!

Pros: positive customers
Cons: very simple and kinda booring
need a great memory because the sale floor is always shifting, and you can not leave register to refresh memory for better guidance when directing inquisitive customers. policy is a great wall, do not try to get away with any rule breaking termination will follow, verification for personal checks, helium balloon ordering ect.
people come here to prepare – more... for partys, not funerals HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY I enjoyed my time around familys who knew the importance of a deal and a good party. – less
