Not worth the time and effort
It was an okay place to work for the most part. My manager was sick often (which obviously isnt her fault), and was away on sick leave for months at a time which left the remaining associates and assistant manager scrambling. The assistant manager was rude and strict, make one mistake and it would lead to months of bad treatment and passive aggressive behaviour which I found to be quite anxiety inducing. She also has a habit of picking favourites. It just led to feelings of resentment and anger and I hated working with her.
Training lasted maybe 8 hours, which I found to be stressful when new employees were hired. We had to take over their lack of experience and training from management and it was draining and added more work, it was often more work training someone than just being shorthanded.
You were either crazy busy or left with nothing to do for a five hour shift, and if you were caught 'not doing anything' you would get reprimanded. This job involved a lot of 'looking busy' and mindnumbing tasks to pass the time.
The 45% discount was the only positive and theres nothing in this store worth buying, also who buys a $12.95 birthday card??
some employees are so nice
rude customers and management
