Fantastic management and extremely flexible with schedules
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Provo, UTSeptember 29, 2013
Pros: flexible schedules, friendly environment
Cons: low pay
I was hired for a specific store and couldn't be happier with the location. I have the best management with such positive attitudes. We are like well oiled gears. We have our own system and work great with eachother. There is always communication within the shift changes. Everyone knows exactly where we are at at all times. The hardest part of the job – more... is setting the new lines, especially when they are pretty large. The most enjoyable is the co-workers. They are all very friendly and fun. We have our own little family at work and it is amazing. – less

great company
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), Richmond, VASeptember 8, 2013
Pros: benefits, paid time off
Cons: short breaks, not enough pay
I have learned a lot in this company, I started when I was 19, and learned how to be as a team player and manager. When I realized I did not want to advance any further in the company, I knew it was my time to leave. The hardest part of my job was the inconsistent hours, being that I have a family now, and the high demands with not a lot of respect – more... from peers. Love working with people and I enjoy the satisfaction of someone leaving my store being happy with my service. As a manger, I have learned how to have leadership courage. – less
