Great place to work if you want a lot of hours and feel like you are at work all the time.

Go for it because it is great benefits and if you are Assistant Manager you have more flexibility- senior managers are always pigeon holed and its volatile for scheduling a work--life balance.

    They cut managers from 5 to 2 so coverage is required and if someone calls out or quits, you're screwed and forced to be there. A manager must be there at all times.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It's a lot of physical work. The upper management does not provide necessary support,. They have grown from 15 to 30+ locations and it requires people to make it work. They do not provide a living wage (which works for people receiving disability or alimony or retirement checks, but for single hard-workers the pay does not add up. They manage with an iron fist and have a lot of turnover. Overall its a fun physical job with diverse people and loyal customers, but the hours and lack of training is less than inspiring. High expectations- but do not provide the resources - people, cashiers, donation attendants, trucks, etc, As a mid level manager my voice was not heard and it was extremely frustrated. When I was promoted to senior level manager, I worked 60+ hours per week because employees were unreliable. I a currently on a leave of absence because I was burned out, a single mom, and finishing my MBA. Daycare does not support the required hours of working. If I were childless it would be easier. I finally was promoted from making $15.50 to $42,000 but they cut the bonuses for managers from $600/mo to $300/mo. Many managers left because of this,

    My direct supervisor has offered to help with schedules when things happen. They did offer me a regular weekend day off !
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Would recommend if the pay was more than $11.50 an hour & there was a union, which is needed there.

    Schedules are made 3 weeks in advance, which is great for planning things but not for occasions where you don't receive enough notice.

I have worked for three different managers who have overlooked sexual harassment claims because the man involved was well liked by the male boss. I have also witnessed a female fired for missing work to go to appointments regarding her pregnancy.

    My coworker struggled to get two months of maternity leave and my boss makes a big deal of telling everyone he wants to fire her for it.

    My family has been in and out of the hospital and my boss refused to work a better schedule out with me, not allowing me to switch shifts with other employees even.

It's not worth the lost time with your family, and missing out on your children's growing up.

    They treat their managers as slaves, they are always moving around around our shifts without asking and if they do ask you have no option but to do as they ask or your punished for it. You work any where from 12 to 16 hour days some times for weeks on end with en with no days off. If your not part of the click and bow down to you store and shift managers they go out of their way to fire you.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Only ifin they are able to solely place their job before their family.
