Mastermind Toys is a great place for a first job, because they hire ages 16+, and as long as you love toys and are somewhat responsible they'll probably hire you. You get paid pretty much the same as every other sales associate even if they've worked there longer than you! They're also pretty flexible for hours as long as you don't expect to work a lot. Hours get very slim during certain times of the year.
Work environment is great and fun, you get to see new toys and product come in along with the new generation of children and see what they're into.
Management is pretty decent, but be ready for them to expect a lot from you if you're a hard worker. Don't forget to expect customer complaints and situations, and when you follow policy, you get to watch as management deals with the situation by giving them what they want and allow you to be treated poorly.
Don't expect a high chance of moving up in the company either, because the positions show up only every once in a while and even if you're good they'll probably pick someone else!
Unfortunately the company does nothing for employee loyalty, if you've worked there for years you still get paid min wage as an associate.
If you live at home and don't have bills to pay, this is the job for you. It's the only way you'll profit.
Play with toys, staff discount
Same music playlist they've had for years that will drive you nuts, slim hours, no raises
