    Pros

    Performance based promotions, do what you are supposed to do and you will get promoted...

    Cons

    ... if you are pretty enough. Will hire you as a manager if you are young, incredibly good looking and have a college degree... nothing else matters. If you are hired as a manager and are not incredibly handsome or gorgeous... your career is over before it even started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your management turnover is over 100%, something is wrong

    Pros

    the schedule was extremely flexible, everyone you work with will be real chill, you will like all your managers, you can really play all day so its easy money.

    Cons

    the company doesn't give a crap about their employees, they don't pay you over time when they should, the quality of the clothes is poor, they only hire attractive people they are butt holes, they make you buy their clothes even though that's illegal.

    Pros

    Nothing. Maybe the only thing is that you get to meet some cute girls.

    Cons

    No proper training received, only scheduled to work less than 4 hours a week. Constantly folding clothes, even if they have already been folded. Just overall, a horrible place to work. Plus you are forced to buy their clothes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees better.

    Pros

    There are no pros.
    Well, I suppose they pay you on time....depending that your manager isn't committing time fraud.
    Good benefits, but I suspect those are pretty bad too now.

    Cons

    Everything.
    I've seen a Lost Prevention associate steal silver quarters out of a safe.
    Horrid company culture---every bad thing you've heard/read is true and it gets much worse.
    And.. the pay is terrible. I was an idiot to stay on for as long as I did to think it will get better.

    Do not walk, RUN away from this dishonest, disreputable company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're terrible.
    Horrible attitude from management toward staff..
    Management lack skills to manage.
    The company is losing money and consumer confidence. There is a reason why.

    Pros

    Great discounts
    Cute clothes
    Not very many pros, this company has a lot to work on. This job is a joke.

    Cons

    Horrible hours, if you're into working 1 day a week (if scheduled at all), 4 hour shift then this is the job for you.

    The managers are extremely full of it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so stuck up
