    Pros

    Positive Energy, Environment for learning, team atmosphere

    Cons

    Irresponsible & unprofessional HQ & Field Leader environment, no work life balance - if you don't work 50-65 hours slow down so it looks like you are a dedicated worker!

    Pros

    The discount was great. There was a great team when I was there. Managers were pretty flexible when it came to scheduling.

    Cons

    Scheduling could be a pain most of the time, and it was understandable because if we didn't reach our sales goal, there would have to sometimes be cuts. Again, due to the time (after the holidays) I would get scheduled 8 hours a week with an open availability. It wasn't my fault, nor the manager's... it was sales.

    Pros

    It's a fun environment with a lot of good experiences. Great pay for a first job

    Cons

    Unstable management, don't train new people soon enough, poor scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    Train new people on everything within their first 2 weeks of working. Don't let it wait, It's better to be prepared.

    Pros

    Pros:
    1. Amazing coworkers & positive employee morale
    2. Nice discounts (25% off regular items, 10% discount items) *depends where you live*
    3. Extremely flexible with work hours
    4. Great for college students who are looking for seasonal positions
    5. Gives you many opportunities to grow within the company from a sellebrity, to a service leader, to a store manager

    Cons

    1. If you hate picking up after other people, retail isn't for you
    2. If you have no patience, and hate seeing your hard work destroyed within an hour - retail isn't for you
    3. If you have an attitude problem and hate when customers harass you - retail isnt for you

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees. You help them, they help you

    Pros

    I enjoyed the company culture for the period of time that I was working there. The store that I tended was one of the stores with the highest asset theft, and so I found it a fun challenge to keep my eyes open for sneaky locals. Aside from that adventure though, I liked being around the sorts of clothing that I would wear, and I enjoyed the staff since we were all of a similar mindset. The atmosphere was casual and enjoyable. Competitive wages

    Cons

    There seemed to be a lot of dust and dirt. The floor was polished concrete, which wasn't the problem as much as where in the clearance section, if clothing fell onto the floor we had to be sure to clean all of the dust off of it since the cleaning staff didn't do a thorough job. Management seemed a bit overtaxed and not as supportive as we would have liked them to have be, but the company did give associates more power than other companies, so that may have had something to do with it.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the need for bag checks when leaving, but it makes your employees feel as if you don't trust them and creates a rift between the employee associate level and the management level. Train associates more on the impact of theft and how to prevent it rather than making them feel as if you dont' trust them.
