I have been with the company since November 2019 and been promoted 3 times. I am now a CSM coming from a sales rep. when you make a effort, and stay focus anything can be done. I love the engery, and being busy is fun too. I look at this as a challenge, and a take off to better. I Love the atmosphere too. Have fun and lead with positivity everything will be fine.

If this is your first job it’s a great start, but other than that it isn’t worth it. Management does not care about their employees well-being and the hours are not flexible. The amount of work you have to do is also not reflected in pay unless you work during the holidays. If you’re over 16 this isn’t the place for you. If you’re looking for a first time job get your experience and leave.

Helped me get a better job and know what not to look for in a future job. It offered basic insight on how to be a sales associate but beyond that it offered no further investment or goals.

From what i do remember, you need to keep the store clean and ring through customers when they are ready. You don't sell, just clerk. Young customers like to steal cheap candy.
Pros
Easy job for easy money, good first retail job
Cons
Slow, uneventful shifts abound.

Its hard to say what a normal day looked like, everyday was different which made working there exciting and challenging. I learned a lot about sales, merchandising, training and leading store teams. The hardest part about working there was probably that there was not as much support from the cooperate office as i believe there should have been.
Pros
Opportunity to work in different locations
Cons
salary was low for a while

Five below is a good first job for teenagers and people in high school. Or people who are out to make a little change on the side. Honestly it was an underwhelming experience.

You essentially run the store. You clean, cashier, do stock, re-shop. It is an over all fun place to work at and not very high pressure. Its a great first job!!

Tasks are easy to get a hold of and the managers are very nice. The store is small so it is easy to find something or someone else. The coworkers are hard workers.

Working at the location I was at was enjoyable for the holidays along with my people on the staff and crew! Though management is a bit too competitive and too strict on certain tasks, more so during the holiday season. It more depends on who's in charge and the time of the year.

I was a sales associate. There were about 4 working registers. I would bag items and answer customers questions. I would also have to put away items misplaced around the store.
