    Pros

    50% discount on all product.

    Cons

    Gossipy atmosphere, childish decison making processes. Feels more like a high school mentality than an office. Extremely low compensation for entry to mid level employees. Unbalanced sense of promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate who you hire, and respect the experience that brought them to your company.

    The new management is horrible and they cut hours to avoid having any full-time employees who would potentially receive benefits

    Pros

    Good music played in the store.
    Flexible hours.
    Very very good discount. 50% off + whatever sale is going on.
    You get to work in very comfortable clothing. Sweatpants, t-shirts, shorts, sneakers.

    Cons

    Random schedule hours. And usually not that many.
    Store manager is a pain to everyone.
    Can't call someone out for stealing even if they do it right in-front of you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be overly strict about things. Employees look forward to working with managers that take the time to help them instead of criticizing them every step of the way. Also don't choose favorite employees, and if you do, don't make it obvious like my manager.

    Pros

    Benefits are good discount at the stores is one of the best I've ever seen yearly raises opportunity to grow in the company

    Cons

    Long hours upper management seems to not really care about employees only about getting numbers hard to come back day after day when you don't feel like you should come in at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make coming to work more enjoyable have things run smoother and give employees more options to get employed at corporate even if they don't have degrees because sometimes people don't need school to be at a great job

    Pros

    It is a great team atmosphere. Team members are always willing to step in and help one another.

    Higher management thinks they are above the law. After being there a while they do not give you the opportunity to grow or advance to a higher position.
