As a supervisor, I was not paid enough and the workplace was unpleasant to work in on a daily basis. Minimum room for growth without working for 10 plus years to get a promotion. However, most days were not long. I loved working with the customers as well.

I worked really hard there and I thought I was always doing a good job but the manager didn't seem to like me or didn't think I was moving fast enough. You work hard and don't seem to get much appreciation there.
Productive and fun place but can be demanding at times
Associate (Former Employee) – Duluth, GA – July 8, 2017
Fun place to work. Typical day as cashier is greeting customers and maintaining the front of the store clean and helping customers. Job can be stressful and demanding during the holidays and back to school.
Taught me how to deal with all types of customers.
Floor Supervisor (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – July 5, 2017
As Assistant Manager, I had opening and closing duties which dealt with paperwork, going to the bank, and our Shoes 2U program. I was also the department lead of Women's Athletic. We received a truck every week, had to get the shipment out, and sometimes that meant moving the department around. We had a high theft problem, so we had to watch certain customers and try to discourage them from taking shoes. Customer service was a priority for all workers, which included making sure they were finding what they needed. We have a program that we could offer them to order the shoes they wanted. The hardest part was trying to do all aspects at once when the store was understaffed. The part I liked most was helping people find what they needed based on something I suggested.
Ultimately a good start for joining the work force. Not something i feel is a career fot for myself Not a set schedule is starting to become a problem. And the amount of pay i receive for amount of time ive been there has not compensated me as i feel necessary.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Monroe, LA – July 4, 2017
A fast paced environment most days. The managers and other employees were nice and professional. The most difficult part of the job was running isles. The most enjoyable part was making holes for the next truck.

They are very good with helping you out while you are school. They pay minimum wage and gave you vacation time. I worked there 2 years out of my highschool and only got another job so I can advance in life.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Carmel, IN – June 25, 2017
A typical day at work would be counting money when assigned to a register. I would help customers check out, which would help me learn about how people are about things. The management was very professional. I worked with a wide variety of people. The hardest part of the job was loading stock and cleaning bathrooms. The most enjoyable part of the job was when I got to announce deals over the microphone.
Good Management, good environnment, always busy.
shorter breaks than normal, not enough hours scheduled
I enjoyed my job due to the 25% discount on all merchandise and the fact that I was 18, working with other 18-20 year olds. However the pay is $7.2 which isn't jack squat. I worked here about 10 months, so unsure how fast you get promoted, but the pay isn't worth all the heavy lifting and the truck shifts where you have to be at work at 5am. This place also makes you work random shifts so you may work til 10pm tonight and turn around to be there at 5am the next day. They won't allow anyone to have a set schedule which is lame
SALES ASSOCIATE AND CASHIER (Former Employee) – Independence, MO – June 20, 2017
The company couldn't hold employment. Highly disorganized. Okay place for a starter/high school job. You have to know how to stick things out and create your own environment. Don't expect too much advancement.
