Unsatisfying to the highest degree.
Front End Associate (Former Employee) – Taylor, PA – January 21, 2019
A typical day at work can be anywhere from legitimately dead and management looking to cut hours or completely packed and drastically under-staffed depending on the time.
I learned a lot about how easily management will take advantage of you if you work hard and perform well, speaking of management the entire company seems to be completely mis-managed from top to bottom but everyone seems to be waiting for the stores to be sold off to another company.
The only positive is the people you work with who are for the most part good people but they're also all people who get taken advantage of so it's not really camaraderie as much as it is "Can you believe we're both stuck getting screwed like this?" However these are the same people you'll be fighting for hours against so even that isn't really a positive.
The hardest part of the job is the micro-management of those in higher up positions than you, even if you know how to do your job better than anyone else you will still be criticized AKA "It's never enough" syndrome.
The most enjoyable part of the hob, like I said is the people. The customers and your fellow low-level co-workers.
