Retail Clerk (Former Employee), baton rouge, la – September 2, 2014
I learned about the different characters of people... I learned how to handle cash transactions, do paperwork, stock, and greet customers who eventually I knew by name. The most I liked about the job was that I love to work with the customers.
Lead CSR (Former Employee), Okeechobee, Florida – August 31, 2014
I had to clean up after everybody else. I carried the weight of the store on my shoulders. I did not like all of my co-workers, but I did like some. Management was good, but assistant managers sucked. Hardest part was picking up the slack. Most enjoyable was being able to prove myself. I learned that if you work hard, good will follow.

Pros: awesome customers, solo work, and free food
Cons: employees were lazy, dangerous area with no extra incentives
the job overall was extremely easy and not hard to follow the problem was the area i was working in was rough to say the least and the managers had no idea what they were doing half the time, they also never showed up on time and absolutely would not give you over 38 hours. i worked night shift and took care of the store all by myself. every night i – more... came in the place was a wreck and i solely cleaned it all. i had customers say no ones kept this store as nice as you have and i appreciated that. but the employees would shrug everything on me because they knew id get it done – less

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – August 20, 2014
Pros: very clean, enjoyable atmosphere.
Cons: no lunch breaks.
Typical day consist of a lot of cleaning, stocking, helping customers with things and keeping the customer happy for the little time that they spend in the store. I learned a lot while working here, I learned how to do a lot of different paperwork that the managers did just in case they didn't come in, I learned how to properly clean certain things – more... and I learned how to respond to emergency situations properly. My co-workers and I to this day are very good friends, they were always kind, we always had a great time at work and being around one another. My managers were the best managers you could possibly ask for, they were extremely cool yet very professional. They always made me feel comfortable and gave me great hours! The hardest part of the job was the beginning of the morning shift from 6am-3pm. Around 6am, a rush of customers would come in on their way to work to pick up coffee and breakfast and I would be alone waiting for the 2nd person to come in, so things would get a little backed-up but I always kept my cool and got everyone in and out in a timely manner. The enjoyable part was being around friendly people all day long, sometimes after I clocked out, I would hang around for an extra few minutes. – less
