Sales Associate in Edmond:
"Great."
Pros: Meeting and helping people.
Cons: Everyone don't work together.

Cashier in Lincolnton:
"Its like a middle school."
Pros: You have a customer relationship with most of the people that come in because it's such a small town and the store is basically locally managed.
Cons: Certain managers make extremely rude comments not only about the customers, but the employees as well. A LOT of drama. You're expected to do the work of four people while running the register, and you only see the managers when you call them to the front for assistance. I walked in as a customer yesterday and the manager made a smart comment about not being able to throw totes, yet I've WORKED there for 5 days, the store is trashed, you can't find anything, and the handheld they give you to use don't work. I'm not sure they do their safety walks either. They're very lazy and unprofessional when it comes to managing a store that could thrive in such a small town.

Retail Store Manager in Safford:
"Overworked, one day off."
Pros: Custmers.
Cons: No life.
