"Good" or Better Retail companies to work

Alright, seeing as many people on here have recently found their stores closed and are looking for other jobs I figured we could start a list of places people should check out, as well as places people should stay away from...granted retail in general sucks there are definitely companies out there that are alot better than others.

Id recommend Best Buy, as i've heard they are pretty good to work for but that can depend largely on your managers.

Best buy is like Blockbuster except you push credit cards to my knowledge. Also any Jon depends largely on the manager.

I worked seasonal at Target last holiday, and it was great. Sales floor position keeps you busy with no real demands, and the cashier's only obligation is the red card which you only ask if it randomly prompts you.

I went to work at Wells Fargo. Better pay. No nights. No weekends. Paid holidays. They like people with sales experience but no banking experience...that way they can train you their way. I'm happy there.

I manage a Petco now and I could not be happier. It's nice to be a part of a growing business and not a floundering one and that atmosphere makes all the difference. I'd list off the benefits, but seriously, it's better than BBV in every conceivable way.

Well, except maybe that I have to pay $1 to rent a movie now instead of getting it free. But my salary and raises make up for that pretty well...
