    Pros

    The company affords you the opportunity to achieve incentive goals based off of personal sales. The overall cultural values and structure are still in their infancy but offer a great commission scale for store management.

    Cons

    The store culture can become a shark tank like atmosphere in which the customer's needs are obsolete in lieu of closing a sale. The stores are older and in severe need of remodeling. Achieving a decent work-life balance is a struggle as stores are always understaffed due to the high turnover nature of the selling and sales structure. Additionally, there is always a rotating cast of senior managers year in and year out, which severely impacts any traction the brand can make in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a plan and strategy in place at the beginning of the year instead of flying by the seat of your pants. Define an identity of your own in the retail industry as most people still don't know what you sell. Invest in your sales force through programs like tuition reimbursement etc., in order to establish a stronger internal bench. Slow down the high turn over rate by implementing better training programs through the use of actual trainers.
