If you want to learn and grow, this is the company to work for! Always changing, fast paced and a great crew to work with! As in any retail environment, you will have "Karens" but there are also some very warm, caring and appreciative customers! A few have even brought me lunch!

Assistant Store Manager in San Angelo, TX
on August 17, 2022
Job security, loved the people I worked with. Management lacked a little as far as support from the GM. Worked great when there was enough capable people on staff. It was low on the payscale in relation to the physical workload. Long operating hours made it difficult to plan a home-life balance

The management team provided good training. They also helped out when employees needed it. They also helped out students with their schedules during the week.
