    Time goes by fast, great discount, constantly recognized for successes, encouraged to push yourself, growth opportunities and great music

    Multitasking is an understatement, lots to do all the time. Older POS system, Very high standards.

    Setting high goals for your staff is understandable but be more reasonable!

    Pros

    Flexible with my schedule and always willing to give me more hours if I worked well

    Cons

    pay was very low for the amount of things they want you to do

    Advice to Management

    take into consideration if an employee is traveling in order to determine their salary - i.e I live in NJ and commute to NY and was only paid 9/hr

    Pros

    the bonuses are very good but it is rare that you get them aside from the weekly bonus of 50 for making weekly sales quotas.

    Cons

    poor upper management, poor pay, poor communication throughout company

    Advice to Management

    talk to your employees that are actually in the stores and see what they think will improve the company. employees would work harder for more benefits and pay

    Pros

    Great hours
    Easy closing
    Discount
    Really don't do much

    Cons

    Immature upper management
    Felt like highschool

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. The 34st location is just a hot mess, cooperate should look into management. Staff would drink on the clock, management would show up hungover.

  10. So much work, a little bit of pay. injustice
