I guess it takes a good part at what location you're from.
I've got to experience working at two different locations. All I can say is you definitely don't need to sign up for a gym membership.Theres is so much running around, dealing with 4-5 customers at once, changing the store according to your visuals, remembering what kind of stock you have and seeing if it is possible to order online. Collecting emails and customer service is the main focal point.
My main store that I worked at was always so busy, we had to do extra things than other stores had to do like security tag and zip type our panels and bed sheets, and they would cut our hours if we couldn't make budget that week but still so much to do. Theres definitely a lot to compare to.
Staff is O.k, I worked with mostly older people, and the kids would give you attitude or be very lazy, and I never got weekends off, you literally have to book them off in advance rather than hoping they'll remember that you haven't had a weekend to yourself in months.
Sometimes the music in the store was weird, there were only a few good songs if this matters to some people aha. But I definitely learned a lot like cutting blinds, and somewhat interior designing, and there were some cute things I did buy, but the discount kind of sucks.
You also get your discount card in three months of working.
I think the district managers expect to much at such a low pay.
