If you can manage the pace then it can be a good experience sometimes slow sometimes fast depending on customers. Good experience though so that's a positive experience.

They make promises of promotion, but as soon as the position is available they advertise the position and give it to someone who is not even qualified. They have a high staff turnover rate because of this and they give you a below average rate salary. Only good thing is the fringe benefits. Overall it is a good company to gain experience, but once you have gained the experience it is best that you find yourself a other job because there is a little room for growth in the company.

This working space that I've experiences is not as the work pretend it to be, this work need more mature and trustworthy staff. I mean trustworthy to the fact that I've not received payment since 2016. Ay After contacting the store at numerous occasions, there was always an excuse.
