    Good Company, Slow Growth

    Store Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsI like the people that I work with and the way they lay out everything for you. You are also able to switch a few things up when it is not working for your specific store.

    ConsHaving to work weekends, but also 2 closing shifts. Whenever corporate are supposed to come visit the always bail on us. We are the factory store so we do get treated worse than all others. They do a lot for the retail stores and we just kind of hang in the background.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBust your butt so that you can move up faster. Do not stop trying because once you do they will find a way to let you go.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Flexible, but outgrew my duties.

    Visuals (Current Employee) Arcadia, CA

    ProsWonderful job when I was younger. Did not have to work weekends, I worked early in the morning and enjoyed not being a sales associate per my work personality.

    ConsMore hours should be allocated to visual workers and stock associates so that they can keep par with company standard. I constantly found myself doing work and projects that would take 20 hours/week to complete yet I would only have two 4-hour shifts to complete. (8hrs). Not store management's fault, it's the district manager's.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is good.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great overall experience! Passionate people work for this company.

    Store Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsStructure and organization, Loyal employees, internal promotions,. If you are in management then you will have great benefits. Otherwise-as an associate it's a great job for someone who wants growth and development in retail. Be willing to put in the work to prove yourself.

    ConsWork-life balance. Constant changes that can be difficult. Hours for associates are based on sales per hour. If you cannot sell you won't get any hours. No commission. Heels encouraged so your feet will hurt.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure you have great partnership with your SM and DM.
