    Pros

    Christmas time could give some people opportunities to pick up to 60+ hours each week. I wasn't looking for that number of hours, but it was great to know that once my husband was home to watch the kids I could pick up more. I thought the team leads were really sweet and wanted to help.

    Cons

    Once Christmas tie was over my scheduled hours went down to 5 hours per week.

    Pros

    Competitive starting pay and bonus
    Opportunity to grow within planning
    Planning system specifically built for company
    Benefits - great insurance
    Great people - easy to work with

    Cons

    The location is not preferable to people wanting to live in a bigger city
    High turnover in merchant/planner positions

    Advice to Management

    My biggest issue was with the location and no opportunity to work for the company in a different city. I think they wouldn't benefit from having offices in other locations. There would be lower turnover.

    Pros

    Good first place to work retail. Recruited with no management experience. Training program is basic but perfect for the needs of the business.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than most retail jobs in the area. One can get promoted quickly but with stores not performing well and areas closing, more people are fighting over less promotions. Since you hire young, inexperienced people the part-time staff can be unreliable. Upper management notices what you do wrong 10x more than what you do right. Coverage is extremely light so managers will find themselves doing cleaning, cash registers, go-backs, etc.

    Pros

    very easy job, minimal requirements, and some what of a good discount.

    Cons

    the hours are really bad, there isn't a set schedule. you would have at least two days on-call and if you do work it would depend on whether the manager likes you.

    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.
