Sales Associate in Leesburg, VA
on October 23, 2020
The job is reliant on your coworkers. Depending on the manager and coworkers (which can change very often) how things are done will shift. Also, communication from higher up to the actual stores can be very spotty and unclear. But the pay is great! LOTS of standing around

The pay is low and no room for advancement. they are cheap when it comes to raises for both managers and associates. Worked here 1.5 years and got a .10 cent raise. Sales associates have manager duties pushed onto them with no compensation and are hounded about sales numbers consistently by corporate. They understaff shifts but then complain about being short staffed if someone calls off. Then they wont schedule coverage because they’re too cheap to pay more employees to be scheduled at the same time. No incentives for having good numbers or being a good employee. Corporate managers don’t care about employees issues and belittle them if brought up. would not recommend working here
Store Manager in Arlington, TX
on September 14, 2021
I have worked in retail for 20 years and have never seen such a game of chase your tail....trickled down to you from all the levels of management. Efficiency is definitely an opportunity here. They just throw "ideas" out to the masses before they test it in a district. They get it wrong....ALOT. In the end it affects the customers experience every time in one way or another. They just need to get it together in many areas. They put pressure on you to make that $$ for the company but don't give you the proper tools to be successful.

I have a great store i work in and enjoy the new learning opportunities each day you help someone. Fast paced on busy days but if you are into the work culture you'll enjoy it.

Great job just a horrible manager. With a new manager that this location I wouldn’t have left. The people I worked with were wonderful and I’m still in touch with most of the employees.
