All about the numbers. You work alone 10 am to 5 pm. Stores have gotten robbed at gunpoint point and sometimes they refuse to put double coverage. Basically a one man show.

Most of the time, they are long, especially if you open the store. It used to be you would open with one or two people, and then it was always by yourself. At night, you're usually working with 1 other person.

Literally no one helps you at all once they get you in the door. I went from 4 different stores in 3 years because either management sucked or they needed me to go run a store for the pay of $9 an hour. I was an ASL. I made $11.50 at this point when I should have been making $13-16. I left one store to go to another location down south and the guy who replaced me started off at $14.50 an hour. At the new location I was put at, management never came down to help when I asked, I was always made to feel a burden. My health started to decline from all of the stress they put on me so I left. They replaced me like I was nothing. Horrible company to work for.
