Co workers and customers are great.
Store managers try but everyone is belittled and berated by district managers and up. Imagine being threatened that the regional maanger will 'disipline' your store if your number of pro cards doesn't go up. And how? By visiting your store and telling how much you all suck. Yup every day.

Imagine a place where everyone’s happy and content with you selling your weekly quotas and don’t berate you over numbers even when you’re top seller, there’s plenty of hours to go around, the pay isn’t atrocious, and the managerial staff are somewhat competent! After you’ve got a clear image of that read on.

It’s a three tiered garbage fire of minimum wage pay stubs, solo shifts on Black Friday, and the corporeal forms of lunch breaks you’ll never take because the new employee (Hypothetically named Jebidiah) learned his alphabet from a blind Malaysian monk who only writes in Cyrillic decides games starting with the letter ‘S’ are fated to be shelf nomads not to be tied down by the lowly laws of men.

The culture was great. Migos really rocked on that one.

The work culture has dissolved into numbers on a spreadsheet and how high an employee can get their own personal production to be able to work the next week.

They try to make it fun but it can be very stressful with barely if no chance to relax. They are also very pushy with getting sales and strive to be like those sales people that don't let customers leave without asking or pushing every single item or promotion they have a available to sale. They also push what they call COL on all their associates to maximize percentages on. Also, upper management does not listen to store management.
