    Pros

    Friendly customers. Easy labor. Nice environment. Good hours. Nice pay.

    Cons

    Slacking in management department. Short staffed. Felt more like high school than a job. No discounts. Did not have up to date equipment.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to train managers to be professionals. Lying, sneaking around, and degrading employees is not professional whatsoever.

    Pros

    Meet many different people and gain a respect for the people who put up with the customer service industry. Also store managers can make really good money through commission bonus

    Cons

    Low pay, little respect, minimal benefits unless you are store manager or higher. Company/management takes any tips you receive from customers

    Advice to Management

    When you have entry level workers doing the jobs of department managers, and vice versa, you're turnover rate of employees is going to stay high. Pay more attention to those who are willing to work hard, not who sucks up the most.

    Pros

    people are great and you gain a lot of experience with help if you need it.

    Cons

    management could be better if they treated their employees like their an essential part of the "team". and the only scanning gun we have is at u-scan so if you have a bad back good luck lifting water bottle cases.

    Advice to Management

    being less harsh and providing the correct equipment to employers can help avoid a lawsuit.
