    Pros

    - World renown brand name with strong reputation for your résumé - Lean organization with very hands-on approach; allows employees to really learn and hone their skills as they work - Excellent Central Jersey location; great for serious employees not looking to travel to NYC - Standard working hours plus summer schedule - Employee discount

    Cons

    - Upper management takes advantage of the work-life balance the location affords; low pay for industry - No promotion from within; to get a 'industry-aligned' pay increase, you have to leave - When key team members leave, their work is divided amongst remaining members, not a replacement hire

    Advice to Management

    You are a powerhouse brand within the industry. Treat your employees as such. Institute career tracking, work with employees to develop their skills and you will retain the top talent you helped create (that you are losing to competitors)

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Waterford Wedgwood.

    Interview

    It started off with bringing in my resume to the store and a chat with the Store Manager. Then had a formal interview with the State Manager. Got called and was told I got the job.
