High pressure sales with numbers orientation

Fun place to work
SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ15 December 2016
Typical day at work, supervise employees, help out as well, make sure areas of the store are neat and stocked. Create excel spreadsheets for the stores inventory.
I have learned that the best way for everything to work well is communication among team members.
Our managers kick rocks, they are always there when any employee needs help or anything.
Coworkers always keep themselves busy no matter what.
hardest part of the job, there's any.
Enjoyable part of the job would be when everything gets done on time.
Pros
free employee meal
Cons
short break

Public Safety Officer (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ14 December 2016
Unless you are part of the Public Safety supervisor click, you will be treated unfairly. People have been fired for no reason, and other people get away with a lot. Supervisors do support their officers.
