It was fun at first but as time went by, you begin to notice the negativity of the environment.
There is alot of backstabbing and mostly coming from the management. They think they are better than everyone. the associates are nice and so is the management(at first) but as you are there you begin to realize the kind of work environment it is. Its a very beautiful store but with all the activities they make you do it isn’t worth it the pay. So save yourself and don’t even bother.

Fast paced, challenging work.
Excellent work for driven, committed employees. Lots of product knowledge is expected of you, but they commit a good amount of time to training. Very collaborative environment, and full of friendly faces.

Owners need to change.
Not a good place to work, the staff are overworked and stressed out constantly. In about a year and a half, nearly 20 people have left my location and most of the remaining staff is actively seeking other employment.The remaining staff is being worn thin so that the company can save a dollar by having less people to pay and expect the same level of work as team twice the size could provide.This place is starting to feel like the kind of job people go to until they find a better employment opportunity.

ok place to work, but could do better with training and treating employee's
I got hired at the north location and worked there for about 2 months and on one of my days off I got a very brief email saying I was fired because my product knowledge was not satisfactory. That was it, no phone call or greater explanation just a one paragraph email with no warning. I'd only been there for 2 months and there is a TON to learn and I was asking questions a lot because I'm just a slower learner, but I genuinely thought I was improving and feeling more confident in my job. No one gave me any warning that I was behind in-fact I was told multiple times that I wasn't expected to know everything right away and it takes time. Left a very bitter feeling towards the place cause they were very inconsiderate the way they handled things by not giving me any warning or proper explanation.

Don't work here if you care about your mental health
Management is rude, not willing to help and constantly tries finding fault in you even when you've been doing the same task for months. You will be given different instructions from different people and then get ready for long speeches about what you did wrong. Most stuff is not even important to you considering your wage and there is a high possibility that the manager will do stuff the wrong as well. Staff is non supportive, trying to point fingers at each other and always try to make you feel inferior about yourself being a new hire. Mind me you'll be called "new" even after good 6-7 months here. You'll really know what it likes to be working at a small business because you will end up working late hours and on tasks that are not even a part of your job description.The setting needs more computers to sustain high staff volume. Waiting time makes it frustrating for customers as well as employees. The break room is a small table in the office which is always occupied with people chit chatting. And breaks are never really breaks because get ready to listen to the staff yelling at each other in the office. People are going to be in your space, will touch you even when you ask them to respect your boundaries. Don't expect confidentiality from your manager because the the entire store is gonna know your life story the next day. And never ask for a leave because people will hate you and your coworkers are gonna cover your section + theirs and will probably asked to stay overtime. Overall, a very toxic environment with no scope of growth.
