Management level pay and benefits are great. Lower libel positions pay is not competitive unfortunately. Opportunity for advancement is definitely a perk. Leadership is supportive and engaged.
Cashier/Sales Associate in Detroit, MI

You get paid minimum wage to spend most of your day working. It's hard to take vacation time and PTO. You're working every single holiday but Christmas day. Your personal life will disappear. Even though you have a specific schedule, they force you to work on days they know you're not available on. They say working on those days is temporary, but it never was. There is always something going on with management. They steal and hide incoming items for friends and family. They take days off whenever they want. They just don't care.
Youth Director in Minneapolis, MN

Loved working here. Everyone seems to honestly care about each other and try to create a good work environment. The pay wasn't great but everything else was great.
Accountant in Kansas City, MO
on May 4, 2021
Poor leadership in many of the departments. Finance department operations are stuck in the 90's and not willing to hear new ideas. Controller is rude and very unprofessional. Many of the employees that have been there for years have cult like mentality.
