They have flexible hours, they have no benefits, they have no security unless you consider the mall security, the management isn’t so bad but not good

As you continue working here, there’s no growth in terms of your profession, the only thing you gain as you gain more experience is hours per week but nothing more plus there’s no benefits.

Typical day at work

Ok job. It would be nice if they offered more raises. Every one here gets paid minimum. The experience is good though. One learns a lot on how to deal with people

Great Boss!

I worked at work world for 6 years and for my manager. She was the best boss I ever had. She taught me everything there was to know about the work enviroment. I learned how to run a store, receive shipment. typical day at work was making sure that shipment was done and customers were taken care of. the most enjoyable part was getting to know my employees and have them become like family to me. Hardest part of the job was some of the customers but we made sure that we helped them the best we could. Would Definitely work for my boss again in Santa Rosa, Ca. The Santa Rosa Ave Location

Pros

rewards for selling certain amount of items

Cons

Working on some of the Holidays

Good

Good part-time job. Really good management. Merchandise is easy to sell. A great job to gain experience and confidence in the retail and customer service industries.

Easy going but unprofessional

Its decently slow, definitely a good place to start out in retail and get a hang of things. There isn't any room to move up and you're basically stuck as a sales associate/key holder unless the timing is perfect for you. Too many outside-of-work friends and drama is often.

A good first job.

Good place to work

in one of the day the manger bought my co-works (including me) hot dogs. That was a good day for me because I didn't have to buy anything while I was on my break. There wasn't any hard part of the job because it was all easy, but it just took long to finish. The store was well cleaned. I was able to make some friends at work and I got to know the manger more and I also got more comfortable with the job.

First job taught me a lot about people

This place introduced me to the work life, to new friends and new experiences at work. It taught me to be patient, organized, and to work at a fast pace. I learned a lot of the different nature of people which made me become less judgmental and more open. I also gained a sense of humility working here and at Subway.

Pros

Discounts on items

Sales job with down time

The store is not what you would call busy and more often than not there would not be any customers or extra work to keep you busy.

Pros

Generous employee discount

love this place!

This was probably my most random job. I always love retail but this wasn't my typical "girly" store. I still keep in contact with most of the employees who still and do not work here. Everyone was lovable! But I had to move on to bigger and better opportunities.

Pros

the staff

Cons

the ugly hours of retail.. late night shifts, not enough pay, inconsistent hours, slow traffic on weekdays, work on holidays

product knowledge and easy going

Love helping customers. Receiving shipments and product knowledge. New things all the time. I have learned to be a leader and set examples. Co-workers are great. Enjoyable part is conversing with customers, and helping them. Hard part about my job can sometimes be product knowledge getting all the correct information down so that when customers ask you can give them all the right answers to the best of your knowledge.

Pros

Spiffs to win money each month

Cons

No long term goals/ benefits
