    -the way the store is organized is kinda messy so it’s hard to find stuff -keep pushing you to work faster. Quantity over quality -they don’t properly train you but expect you to not screw up and just know how to do everything -management is ehhh -pay could be better -long hours with you on your feet the entire time
