    Pros

    Honestly can't think of any... Regional manager seemed decent from the short time I was there. My store's management were some of the most difficult people I have ever worked with though.

    Cons

    Late nights setting up one time of product, power tripping store managers.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees and coach instead of insult associates who are having a hard time.

    Pros

    Free/discounted bras. All you had to do was try a bra on and you got to keep it or buy it for like 10 bucks.

    Cons

    Panty bar, management. They were very strict and unfriendly and didn't care about employees

    Advice to Management

    Get new management if you want to keep employees for longer than 2 months

    Love the employee benefits in regards to the products and discounts. Loved working with my team and the experience. Appreciated the ability to move up and make a career.

    Cons

    Horrible training of employees and horrible pay. High turnover rate due to these two main issues. Disliked the hours required (I.e. overnights)

    Pros

    Discount was amazing - 30 % off.

    Cons

    The entire management team was horrible. the store manager has no clue what she's doing. They hire almost anyone... and fire the experienced employees. By the way they are running their store it will shut down in no time.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management.
