Pros: flexible hours, easy to request time off, good college job.
Cons: low pay, company expects a lot out of their associates, stressful
If you're looking for a career, this company is not where you should look for work. There is very little opportunity for growth. Some stores are better to work for than others and the culture varies between stores. Pay is low, hours are long, and breaks are short. Cashiers are expected to multitask at the registers while at the same time provide excellent – more... customer service and please everyone. Cashiers are responsible for answering phone calls, rerouting calls, helping customers find products around the register areas, fronting and facing the isles around the register area (which can be a little far), greeting all customers as they walk through the door, while all at the the same time trying not to make a mistake while ringing out customers. It can be overwhelming at times and stressful. The company also expects their associates to be knowledgeable about all types of animals in the store and how to properly care for them with the products that are offered, be animal nutritionists and explain to customers benefits of one type of food over the other and between brands that are best for their type of animal or breed of dog, all for a whopping $9 an hour to start with no benefits. You might get a 25 cent raise each year if you perform above and beyond every day but the average raise is 10 or 15 cents a year. The training process is a joke, the only way to learn is to mess up, or ask someone who might know what to do. – less
