I’m in highschool, thought it would be a good first job. However Management are all kids 1-2 years older then me with no experience and no consideration to the fact that I am in school! So the schedule me during the day and then wonder why I call out of shifts. Additionally after the extremely fast pace, management and rude customers you only get a 10% discount

Hours are not guaranteed. Got hired in 3 weeks had a total of 12 hours. Not sure why they hire so many cashiers to work them 2 days 4hrs each day give them 2 weeks no hours and then the 3rd week only 4hr shift. They push red cards like crazy and get mad if you don't pressure the guest enough. I heard the LOD gets big time bonus money for red cards but cashiers nothing. Does not matter how fast or good you are they want more and more. Horrible place to work.

They hire people as ETL's that have no respect or work ethic, overpay them and work team members extra hard to cover their responsibilities.

They favored certain people and disliked the people that worked the haardest. It is stress every single day. They push you in RedCards all the time, if you don’t get anyone to sign up your job is on the line. It is so much easier signing up online anyways. It affected my mental health. They did not allow sick days, even if you were in the hospital with an allergic reaction. They pay well because they don’t want their employees to leave.

My TL and HR. There’s a lot of favortism and if they like you in a position, they keep you there and won’t move you. If you like to kiss some butt, you will fit in fine!

They were inconsiderate of my medical problems and whenever I would suggest something to help the company I was shot down by my supervisor. My job is constantly threatened whenever I don't get the Redcard goal for the day. I do not need this stress in my life, therefore I hunted for a job that was secure.

Aftr working there for months, it literally attributed to my depression. They always have way too high expectations, and I would always feel stressed trying to reach them, and sad afterwards when I couldn't reach them. I'm not an incredibly social person, but they will always get upset at you if you're not saying hi to every single customer that walks passed you. Also, if you plan on being a cashier, know that you're also applying to be a salesperson because if you do not get enough customers to sign up for red cards, you will constantly be talked down on because of it.

Little pay....yet they want you to do a lot. Too many mangers from other departments, telling you to do something outside of your immediate duties. Uncaring management..... My stress level went way down, once I resigned!
