Friendly workplace, but unorganized
Asset Protection Associate (Current Employee), Modesto, CAJuly 26, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, not too complicated of a job.
Cons: Unsteady hours and low pay
A typical day at work includes watching CCTV monitors for potential shoplifters and internal cases, checking back stocks for quality merchandise control, and maintaining the safety of the store. All the staff is friendly, but at times can be unorganized. The worst part of the job is the pay.

Good Starter
Loss Prevention Associate (Former Employee), Lorain, OHJuly 26, 2015
Great starter job, but retail has its draw backs. Low pay and benefits were outrageously priced. Overall a good place to work but the separation between higher corporate officials and employees is very disheartening. Not even a nod or how are you from "higher ups"

good commission rates
Sales Associate (Former Employee), houston texasJuly 25, 2015
Pros: good commission rates
Cons: bad management
the only thing good about this company is that the commission rate was good, but the management was very misleading. the company is going down the drain, so they will hire you in a heartbeat and also would get rid of you in a blink of an aye

Positive and huge support environment.
Sales Lead, Supervisor (Current Employee), PRJuly 25, 2015
Pros: Benefits
A typical day at work consist in hard work and always finding new things to do. You are never without something to work with. Always learning new things such as employee conducts, and ways to get more productivity from my team. We always receive positive feedbacks from our managers and always have their support, working in a pleasant atmosphere. The hardest part of my job I would say it would be working with employees because all of them have different conducts, attitudes and personalities. Learning from them and making sure they are working comfortably and positively. But the most enjoyable part would be receiving their positive comments and seeing that they are working in an effective way.

Retail Support Representative (Former Employee), Mobile, ALJuly 23, 2015
The learning process wasn't hard. The managers made sure that you learned everything that you needed to learn in order to do your job effectively. It was a very friendly atmosphere and everyone got alone well. The hardest part about the job was satisfying an unhappy customer. The most enjoyable part of my day was making sale and over exceeding my conversion on a daily basis.
