A decent place to work, despite that awful music!
Sales Associate and Cashier (Former Employee) –  Ontario21 February 2018
Typical day is arriving, punching in, asking your area manager what needs doing, saying hello to customers, cleaning stuff and product replenishment.
Management is as decent as the human in the role- most are nice and the best ones know what the bigger picture is- you're working at a store which sells nothing needed to survive. Therefore, empty your brain, be nice, and enjoy the shiny things.
Culture varies based upon attitudes- some are naggy older women who aren't that tuned in to style, etc. Others are pretty chill, and again, realize the non-serious nature of the job.
Hardest part is often making yourself tune out the absolutely garbage soundtrack which gets changed about once a year by some old white guy who is a Texas billionaire, as well as making yourself indispensable to a minimum wage job.
Most enjoyable is the sheer fact that you're getting paid to sell people stuff they don't need, including glitter.
Pros
No uniforms, pretty things, scheduled breaks, etc.
Cons
Sht music that makes you want to eat a bullet for 8 hrs a day
