It felt a lot like school. Constant quizzing. You have to know so much. The hours are crazy. There are so many rules. You are constantly being told what to do, and not in a directive type of way, but a babying type of way. Everyone is working 30 hours a week. All. The. Time. You're graded on multiple things a day. Management tends to lecture you over things that other businesses wouldn't think twice about. I could never get over the fact that we had to ask for water and to use the restroom. The breaks are very short as well. They watch you like crazy. Coworkers are awesome, the pay is good, but the management is so poor that it clouds the best parts of the job.
Also, there's definitely a job culture. It's easy to feel left out because you are newer or maybe not as outgoing or "healthy" as the other associates. I don't know if they realize it, but it's been an issue for many people.
Friendships, being confident in your products, fast-paced environment, pay
Management, rules, absence policy, constant reviews and quizzes, short breaks, absolutely no freedom, crazy job culture
