What People Say: (From Glassdoor)
I worked at A Closer Look part-time
You can work from home
Basically everything. Schedulers have no days off not even 1. Expected to work 7 days a week 365 days a year. Responsible for “selling” shops to the shoppers for no pay reimbursement only.
I worked at A Closer Look full-time for more than a year
Working at home anywhere in the united states.
You will always be working at home. No days off ever low pay for the hours worked. They expect 7 days a week 365 days a year. If you complain they give you harder areas to work. High pressure negative environment. I honestly can’t say anything positive.
