My experience at Five Below was overall great. If you are new to retail like I was, I recommend starting at Five Below. Everyone there is happy to help you get your feet wet and learn. When I began, it was my first job outside of Genesee Community College. The store is small enough where I did not feel as though I needed to run to every spot in the store to find something, but it has variety so it seems both large and small. The management was nice overall and they were very understanding and flexible when I decided to go to school for my degree and certificates. The most difficult part I would say overall were the customers. Sure, there were the good ones that were kind and friendly, but the ones who were persistent on being right even when they were wrong were extremely frustrating.
