    Pros

    Better than most retail mall jobs. However, something sketchy went on after the remodel and the really great management team was cleared out. New manager is hit or miss. This particular store is better than most because of the clientele that shop in the International Plaza.

    Cons

    Even though it's location is a pro, it also makes the store have lots of traffic. It's great, but if you don't have strong sales associates all over the store it goes downhill quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really should have a better incentive/pay structure

    Nice Discount, really enjoyed the sense of teamwork with my coworkers.

    Cons

    I really did not like this job too much. My managers were always pushing initiatives that were simply impossible to meet in the time that we were given to acheive it.
