    Pros

    Decent pay to fold clothes. Moderately trendy in clothes and music choice. Interesting bond with coworkers.

    Cons

    Mind numbing work. Not a great place to grow. Management tends to forget people on payroll and won't give you hours if you aren't proactive.

    Pros

    depending on the traffic of your store and management you will likely be getting paid for sitting around and talking with your co workers, laid back vibe depending, decent music, okay discount happens seasonally of 50%, easy to learn

    Cons

    they don't promote until you've completed a 4 yr degree which my managers degrees had nothing to do with management so the rule doesn't make a whole lot of sense, no raises, a solid amount of drama so don't run your mouth too much, understand you are working for prejudice people they love talking about diversity but they don't like to hire larger people still and I know that first hand from a DM

    Advice to Management

    a little more professional, offer raises for people who make extra effort

    Pros

    Discount, friends, Black Friday!!, smiles

    Cons

    Managers pick favorites giving them upwards of 40 hours and others none. Managers gossip about teenage employees with other employees

    Stop acting like high school students you're 25

    Pros

    Co-workers and managers are really cool. They work with ur schedule. You have a lot of co-workers incase u need someone to cover for u.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, little bit of hours, clothes can be expensive even with discount (since you are kind of expected to use their clothes). Repetitive boring work if u work in the stock room.

    Advice to Management

    Management is actually really good, but the company should consider less workers in order to give more hours so that people won't be quitting all the time.
