  • It became too expensive to even drive there with gas prices going up to only work for 3 hours. Couldn't afford to work when they kept cutting hours. Got tired of being used and abused by customers, and corporate.

  • Got tired of not having a constant schedule. I got tired of everything. I was a star employee, put up with this for several years, and put in my two weeks and was met with hatred. I'm glad to be out of such a toxic work environment

  • I got tired of my store manager presenting a perfect picture store the my store's district manager. Because of that we were never given enough hours to hire more people to cover shifts when people called out, especially after the mass quitage that happened during 2020. Everyone was expected to come to their shift even if they were sick or physically exhausted from the non-stop shift coverage. It got to the point where there were only 3 people per shift working monday through thrusday even on big doorbuster or coupon days. It was only on visit days that there were enough people for everything to get done.

  • I got tired of doing the job of five people for barely above minimum wage. I got tired of being treated like i was a robot. I got tired of the snotty customers with their coupons. I got tired of being treated like trash by my coworkers. I got tired of not being able to get off on time. I got tired of working every holiday and weekend. I got tired of being on call despite it being part-time. main thing, I was tired of being the only cashier all day from 9-5, doing the tasks of 6 people, being belittled and treated poorly by upper management, coworkers, and staff.

  • At first it was fun. but corporate has cut hours, and staff. we are all very tired and very overworked. it's very toxic, and cliquish.

  • Pay mostly. they cut hours.they cut staff and depend on only 3 people a shift. some days will get 9 hour shifts with only a 15 minute break, and some weeks i can only get 10 hours. flip flopping schedules. i was sitting at a red light rushing to my shift one day desperate for hours, and burst into tears and realized this was not worth it anymore.

  • They cut hours and only have 2 people working one shift, even on weekends. I’m expected to cut fabric, help customers, fill online orders, stock shelves, sanitize everything, ring customers, answer the phone, take out curbside orders, and keep the store clean! I have not even been able to take a break that is legally provided to me because I cannot leave my coworker alone on the floor. I’m always scheduled 15 minutes short of a half hour break, which I won’t get anyway...I got tired of doing the work of 4 people so I had to quit.

  • Toxic work environment during covid. not enough staff, not enough pay....being overworked to death and constantly scheuled outside availability.

  • The mental anguish I receive from customers who complain about everything under the known sun, even things that aren't our fault, is not worth it. and be consistent with the mask policy. I have autoimmune disorders and take immunosuppressants. If i don't work, I can't afford my medication. I live in fear every day.

  • Promises on hours weren't kept. promises on scheduling weren't kept.
