I was one of the first to apply at the store in person. (first team member) brand new spot, not even finished being set up.Six years later the only members of the original team were my coworker who was a key holder and i. Went through about a dozen managers. Hours were terrible and unpredictable. No opportunities for growth.In the end i got bullied by the general manager because i got another part time job a few doors down. My new side job was only seasonal. However she threatened that if i didn't leave that job i would lose my job there. I couldn't risk it so i quit the other job. Then my schedule was changed within 24 hours without my knowledge. So i missed a shift that less than 24 hrs previous i wasn't scheduled for. So that's a no call no show. And just like that after six years of loyalty i'm unemployed.

Pros and Cons
Employee discount
No growth, wages are bare minimum

I decided to apply to Five Below after retiring. I loved working there. Great managers, staff that cared, a lot of public interaction. I loved my customers. When they changed Staff, things changed. The reason I left was I fell at work and broke my hip.

Pros and Cons
Contest for charities for prizes
Too many young people who didn't want to work.

I have adhd and tend to have trouble with executive dysfuntion and having too much energy with nowhere to channel it. Working at five below let me use that energy in a more productive way by doing repetative actions such as stacking and organizing products and displays, working the cash register, and helping customers which I really enjoyed. It also helped me find out these type of jobs would allow me to have fun while also doing tasks. Although I struggled a bit at first, I was able to get the hang of it quick. It's a good first job and from at least my experience, it's a good job for neurodivergent people, and those who are visual and hands on learners.

Pros and Cons
Friendly work environment, plenty of tasks to keep you occupied, and easy to manage
Only con I could think of was figuring out how to bag items fast

Culture and Values
I worked at 5 below for a few months before I had to leave for better opportunities. The environment was friendly, fast-paced, and the manager was very understanding. But they favored one or two employees over the rest, and our hours kept being cut even when we asked for more work to accomidate for the favorite workers. During COVID, this issue got worse. The store only needs a max of 3 people on a shift at a time, and having a crew of 20 or more people made it difficult for them to give everyone reasonable work.

Pros and Cons
Creative freedom, friendly environment
Not enough hours, rush hours with limited help
