Teamwork

I have worked in 4 locations for this company, some of the employees there are the best but others will do everything they can for you to get fired. I remember one employee who was training me in a different department didn't give me the work I was supposed to do, she kept it for herself to make it seem like she was going above and beyond and I was just falling back. I would be done with my work for the entire day in 10 mins of being there. I would ask her for more but she would always say there wasn't any when I could clearly see the stack of papers on her desk. I had to resort to asking others if they needed help with their projects. Eventually I got demoted.

Overall compensation for your work

They pay minimum wage which is okay for this type of job but you can show up for work everyday and they refuse to pay you because of foolish reasons. They offer absolutely no kind of benefits and do not reward you for hard work. I worked with a woman who was there for 20+ yrs and in that entire time she only got a .50 cent raise.

What I like about the company

The only thing I liked about kid city is the fact that I recieved an employee discount and i was able to fit the clothes.

What I dislike about the company

I really disliked everything about working there. The employees in store #1 are vicious, the managers treat you like dirt and speak down to you. They take advantage of you and don't acknowledge your hard work. You are overworked and underpaid. You have to do jobs outside your job description that are sometimes dangerous.
