Seasonal Night Stock Crew (Former Employee), Montgomery, AL – August 21, 2014
Pros: easy-going atmosphere, friendly co-workers
Cons: the job was not secure, since it was seasonal employment.
The evening's work typically began with unloading boxes from the truck and sorting them by section as quickly and accurately as possible. Then we moved onto the floor and stocked the merchandise from the boxes onto the shelves, working as quickly as possible. While we were pressured with verbal encouragement to get the job done as fast as possible, – more... we were not overwhelmed or unfairly criticized. My supervisors and most of my co-workers were friendly and easy to get along with, and willing to help when needed. The hardest part of the job was trying to get everything done in time, and finding a place for new merchandise when the shelves were already full. The most enjoyable part of the job was that there was always something to do, so the hours went by quickly. – less
Productive due in part to the focus on worker. (incentives and praise)
Processing (Former Employee), Midlothian, TX – August 20, 2014
This was one of the best places I have ever worked. The upper management made a point of having lunch with warehouse workers at times and always ask for your opinions. They always made it clear that when goals were made it was due to the workers. I would still be there if the distance from my home hadn't become such a hassle.
Customer Service (Former Employee), West Covina, CA – August 19, 2014
I was a sales associate and customer service when needed or assigned there. At the end of my time being there I was always scheduled at the baby registry desk creating registry for pregnant women and wish list for birth days. I also created furniture orders or anything the guest wanted to order from online.
CUSTOMER SERVICE (Former Employee), Evansville, IN – August 19, 2014
After clocking in I would work the customer service counter. I really enjoyed the job and most of the people I worked with. I very much enjoyed getting to interact with the customers, especially the kids to help them find what they needed. The only problem I ran into with this job was that I was not getting enough hours. I was told that I would be getting – more... full-time hours but continued to get usually around 8 hours a week split into 2 or 3 shifts. It got to a point that it wasn't worth the gas driving to work. – less

It was a part time seasonal job. It was a cool job parents and their kids would come in and the kids face would light up when they seen all them toys. Management was cool, I always did my job so I mean wasnt no problem between us because they never had to say much to me. I got along with everyone there, thats the type of person I am, the hardest part – more... about the job was the pay and leaving when the season was over. – less
Department Manager W/Keys (Current Employee), Livingston, NJ – August 17, 2014
Usually understaffed , fast paced environment . Managers lack supplemental training to do correct job functions and decision making. The associates are great workers when lead in the right direction. My hardest part of this job is the staffing and execution of company initiatives.
