Relaxed but productive workplace with friendly management.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Very relaxed work environment, but tasks can become repetitive and boring at times. Store is usually pretty quiet inside, so most of the time you'll be stocking shelves, bagging clothes, and sweeping the floor towards the end of the day.

Pros

Nice people, not very challenging

Cons

Can be repetitive and boring

A day at a Thrift Store

Depending on the daily task you are given you will spend your shift doing one of three things; Front cash, Sorting clothing or Sorting other goods(ie everything that isn't clothing) Customers are usually great, they enjoy making conversation while they shop for trinkets or a new outfit. Some of them of course are not so easy. Co-workers were great when I first started the job, several of them have gone on to other workplaces and a few of the co-workers that are like to gossip about the other workers and the reason for the others leaving. Management has not reprimanded these occurrences and the work environment has soured considerably. As they do not offer benefits, advancement opportunities or an enjoyable atmosphere I am looking for opportunities elsewhere.

It was great to help people in need

I loved dealing with the public. Helping families in need or just looking for a custom. Getting to know the regular customers was the best part of the job.

Pros

It could be fun working there.

Cons

New management was unfair, favoured the young employees, Also they did not understand it was a charity group, not your everyday store.
