fun workplace!, lackluster managment
CREW MEMBER (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 22, 2015
A typical day at work consisted of coming in, getting assigned to your specific location (cash register, wheels, parts) and greeting the customers, and helping customers, upselling items, helping kids and adults get what they need, selling building toy cars! If you're put in that station.. etc
Management was not great. They were very messy when giving orders. One would tell you to do one thing and the other would tell you you're not doing the right thing.. so you're being pulled in a million directions which are all wrong according to each supervisor or manager. Otherwise friendly management. And sometimes too many employees or not enough employees in a shift.
Coworkers were friendly, and fun to work with
Hardest part was dealing with angry customers.
Best part was building cars with funny kids and even adults.
