It's retail no matter how you spin it

Retail store that likes to call it's self by another name. Is an ok job but not fantastic. Sales assistants make an hourly wage that is not much more than minimum wage. Sales guys do much better but it is hard to break into that position without a few years on the floor.

Pros

Good hours, few weekends

Cons

no adancement

ok

Pay was very dependent upon how well you could increase sales for your particular store. Worked as part of small team frequently. Pay was reasonable for work being done.

Better choices but it will work for a filler job.

If you're 24 years old, fine with making $24K and plan on being around for 24 months than this is the job for you. Anyone else should pass.

Pros

Good discounts

Cons

No advancement if not a "chosen one".

A Good Job if your not looking for advancement

I was a part time sales associate, and for the most part I enjoyed it. There was lots of time where I was at the store by myself for several hours. I stocked vending machines also. The main reason I quit was because November-January they signifacantly cut back on hours. Also the rest of the year it was very hard to get a raise and when I did it was $.50 and they would not give me anymore hours that 24.

Pros

Flexable with schedule

Cons

Not much room for advancement
