    Pros

    Consistent pay, international customers, opportunity to make commission

    Cons

    Micro managed, gossip atmosphere, lazy buyers, inflexibility as far as schedule, poor communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more regard for the employees. Set a positive tone daily. Understand that there is not always something to do and forced alienation only promote tension and lowers the morale in the store.

    Current Employee - Manager in Miami, FL

    Pros

    Good exposure to meet people from different places, nothing else

    Cons

    Head managers are afraid of the owners and treat employees really bad, they dont care about employess at all. Schedules are insane! very long hours...salaries are low in comparison with expectations. Zero tolerance for mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definetely management needs to update their policies, promotions, happy employees produce more than miserable ones. Reviewieng company policies is a must.

    Current Employee - Store Manager  in  Miami, FL
    Current Employee - Store Manager in Miami, FL

    Pros

    The pro for working here is that its in the airport and that opens doors. TSA cleared an customs cleared. They also really dont pressure you on your sales. A lot of employee coverage is also a big plus.

    Cons

    Ok. unless your the morning manager, ur stuck working an ugly schedule, if ur new that means fri,sat and sun all closing.... when i say closing it means, until the last international flight leaves. Some times 9 sometimes 3 am. You're at the mercy of the airlines.. delays etc.. Upper management is in the same airport and dictate your every move. EVERY MOVE.. THEY LIVE BY WRITE UPS. Their is 3 store managers per store not 1.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PLEASE let us be managers and run a business. Dont micromanage us.
