    It paid my bills and taught me style. Otherwise, terrible company to work for.

    ProsFriendly coworkers, friendly customers, good location, taught me great style.

    ConsZero work/life balance, merchandise completely overpriced, customers only matter for their $, the owner treats employees worse than dirt, extremely high turnover (for a reason), favoritism rampant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, you need to treat your employees way better. They're the ones that keep your stores open and in business and beyond that they deserve respect just as fellow humans. If you treat them with more respect then they will go that extra mile for you. Pushing the sale with the methods you make us practice actually tends to push the client away--most of us made sales by not following the guidelines you encouraged.
    Either stop marking up your merchandise so high or get better stuff, because watching them fall apart in front of your customer when you're trying to sell it extremely difficult.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Richmond Heights, OH

    ProsLocation, friendly co-workers, and interesting products.

    ConsManager is very unprofessional amd talks about employees to other employees. The pay is very low. You are expected to work almost every weekend if you are a new employee. Store manager spends more time eating and talking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStore manager should be evaluated on a regular basis without notice.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
