    Most of the people I worked with were nice. I loved the discount and you get paid above minimum wage.

    Cons

    the manager is kinda creepy and always skulking around corners, trying to catch you or customers doing something wrong.

    Advice to Management

    be more appreciative and acknowledge hard work being done.

    Pros

    Good pay and small bonus potential

    Cons

    Hourly employees hours consistently lowered due to soft sales creating longer hours for salary Management.

    Advice to Management

    Be family minded, as a salary management I understand working up to 12 hours over schedule but 15 to 35 more hours is not family minded.

    Pros

    high pay for a retail job. The company is generous with vacation and personal time. Management is very understanding with schedule limitation if they are reasonable. Friendly work environment most of the time.

    Cons

    Regulations are constantly changing and communication regarding changes are inept. Not very customer oriented at times.

    Great Pay. I had a good team and managers who knew how to set up product for the upcoming season.

    Cons

    30 min lunch break. Some store can and will work better than other because of the lack of vision for merchandising

    Pros

    The pay was decent and they were pretty flexible with hours due to me being in school at the time. The staff were really friendly and management was super awesome. Kind and understanding and didn't ever really give me a hard time for anything.

    Cons

    Sometimes it could get fairly slow in the store due to summer hours. Those days were pretty long but then quickly picked up for holidays.

    Pros

    Great people to work with Great management Works with your schedule very well Higher pay than other retail Job variance - you get trained in many areas

    Cons

    Memorize sales sheets High work load Higher stress than other retail jobs Memorize departments Bad ergonomics at the register

    Advice to Management

    I really don't have any advice for management aside from fixing the ergonomics of the register area. There is a lot of twisting involved, which is not good for anyone's back. There were several back injuries in the store that I worked, and that's one of the main concerns in one of the training videos.
