Pros: Bi-yearly raises, corporate visits can result in gift cards, 20% employee discount, gift card given to employee of the month
Cons: Everything else, THEY DON'T GIVE YOU ANY HOURS
Your weekly schedule (including the number of hours you work) is based on your sales stats... which is based on whatever the cashier decides to do during checkout. This kind of system caused a lot of problems in the store that I worked at; a lot of sale-stealing blaming and whatnot. This is really a terribly thought-out and fallible way of giving your employees hours, because, let's be honest, people in my stores stole those large sales quite often. Definitely not uncommon, and I'm sure it happens in other locations.
On top of this, my managers, save one, were completely incompetent. Absolutely the worst group of people I have ever had as my superiors. I will not go into details, but one of them in particular caused a lot of problems with me when I worked here while in high school. It was so unnecessary and it messed with my (already poor) mental health so badly. After leaving my position to go to college, I vowed to never step foot in, shop at, or work for this company ever again. In addition, I advise anyone who brings up my past employment here to not support this company. Absolutely horrific business practices, no benefits to being a sales associate.
The Job/Work Life Balance portion was rated four stars due to the fact that you barely got any hours per week. There would be months where I would only have one four-hour shift per week. I think the most hours I ever got in one week was somewhere around 30, and that was during peak. What is the point of that?
