    Pros

    You get to learn a lot about retail - how the industry works and you may have the chance to become a department manager but that's pretty much it.

    Cons

    This can really be a long list but i'll keep it short - very low pay, you are easily replaceable for someone who will take even less pay, the opportunities for advancement are pretty low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to see more recognition over a job well done.

    Pros

    Regardless of what department you are in, it is a great place to learn how to communicate internally and externally to get the right message across and support for your initiative. Most employees are friendly,helpful and supportive when you approach for help.

    Huge behemoth to navigate and find the right person.

    Pros

    Really easy. Everyone learns it quick. Great for students.

    Cons

    Everything becomes repetitive and boring after a few months. Never get full 8 hour shifts as the photo lab gets the smallest budget out of all the other departments.
