Team member

May - July 2020 • Munster, IN

What I liked

The organization of the company was great. The other team members were also very nice!

What I wish was different

The managers were very unorganized. I wish there would have been more members hired. We were always running non stop and sometimes couldn't get a break since we were slammed and under staffed.

Advice

My managers were fired due to unprofessional behavior with other members hired. If you see something that makes you uncomfortable, make sure you report it right away.

Crew member

June 2020 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

During a pandemic I believe we weren't really socializing as much, therefore working gave me the ability to finally interact with people especially after being quarantined so long. I like that this place gives me the ability to really practice my multi tasking skills and allows me to grow more as an individual for future experiences.

What I wish was different

I wish our store didn't take cash, because I'm constantly worrying about getting sick.

Advice

To have patience, be ready to multi task, and smile with your eyes.

November 2018 • Sherwood, OR

What I liked

Even though I was only there for a short period of time, I quickly became part of the family.

What I wish was different

They didn't have the best organization, there was no way to contact other people outside of work unless you previously knew them.

Advice

I didn't want to work over the summer but I actually had so much fun, and I'm happy that I did work. Even if you don't want to do it, just try it out first before you make up your mind.
