Recieving Associate in Alabama
on October 21, 2021
Overall a stressful job when you don’t have enough employees working and doing their job. Sometimes a new manger can run down a place, pushing the company’s best employees away
Call Center Representative in Katy, TX
on October 21, 2021
Felt like I was back in high school with the pettiness that goes on in call center. Nobody wants to call a business and be read a script. If you stray from script, your manager calls you in for coaching. There was a points system for shift requests.
Cashier/Loss Prevention in Mansfield, TX
on October 21, 2021
Loved every moment of my employment, great environment and management. You learn great new skills. Incentives applied, holiday season was brutal but management did a great job of making it manageable.
Sales Associate in San Antonio, TX
on October 21, 2021
Simple job, helping customers and inform them of deals. Answer phone when it rings and help out the customer over the phone. Sometimes the other employees would slack or gossip but that's how it is everywhere.
Firearm Sales Associate in San Antonio, TX
on October 20, 2021
The most disconnected group of management I’ve ever encountered. Just abysmal moral. Terrible compensation. No consideration for personal life. Mentally draining.
