    Pros

    Excellent product line. Corporate friendly. This job is for a Part-Time person looking to gain a broad knowledge of the interior design market. Low pay and sales goal are expected, but fun to assist customers achieve the decorating needs.

    Cons

    Worked at calico corners for 8 years, Full-to-part time. Manager studied for degree and locked herself in office of four years of classes. Associates took store lead. Had to turn a blind eye to unprofessional behavior. My eventual shift were many evening. Expected to have sales quota with no evening store traffic. Left to pursue other opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Regional managers(3) never questioned the interest the sales staff has in store operations & concerns of view on management. Store has since closed due to poor performance.
