They pay well and work around availability
Answered November 22, 2019
I worked as a cashier for little over a year and quit because it rarely worked with my school schedule. I would let the managers know ahead of time if I have an exam or something important for school; however, my schedule will still show I would have to clock in. Alongside of this, hours were so rare to get. Its good seasonally because I got hours left and right without it affecting school. But right when it hit Jan 1, I worked one 4 hour shift every other week or sometimes until the following month. I was a pretty good associate, I got credits every shift and did what I was told, but still I rarely got hours. Other than that, the coworkers were really rude when I first started and kissed up a lot to the managers-- very two-faced.

Ensure management is communicating policies with one another to avoid issues. Pay employees a liveable wage. Stop basing all praise/success/focus on credit card applications.

Discount was always 25% with an additional 15 to 20% during friends and family sales discounts don’t get much better than that on already reasonably priced items!. ( Former employee)

Do they offer free lunch?
Asked May 22, 2016
Our store provides meals on certain days: Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas. The store manager also does some on his own throughout the year. There are enough leftovers for a couple of days. For example, at Thanksgiving/Black Friday we had: cereal, milk, fruit, pizza/salad, turkey, gravy, rolls, stuffing, pies, and other side dishes brought by staff. The comraderie at our store is pretty good, and management values our hard work. If you are in a store that has negative, complaining staff, it brings everyone down, and creates a negative environment for customers. Ergo, poor sales!
