    Pros

    I really enjoy the team here. It is a positive and buzzing environment and there is a never a dull day. My managers are flexible with my schedule and discussing more hours.

    Cons

    There has been quite a few changes in store management including the hiring and resignation of many managers. With this transition has brought some disorganization and miscommunication between employees.

    Pros

    Supportive Staff/ Management, Corporate creates great culture and training, family like atmosphere

    Cons

    Attitude of staff can seem offensive and snobby to customers and prospective employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more helpful to employees and job searchers in your store. Don't assume that because you've never seen them in YOUR store before that they have never worked in retail. Be nice to all those interested in finding a job with your company. It's an honor after all to work for AT.

  9. The store's environment coupled with dynamic customer interactions make it an awesome place to work.

    Pros

    Pay every Friday, good discount

    Cons

    Horrible manager who was extremely lazy and didn't even care about her own store!! Never came in on weekends and nights and would never come to the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the employees to find out whats going on to properly coach and train.

    Pros

    Team members are great and truly care about one another. Very generous discount for employees. Clients are great and very loyal.

    Cons

    Development, training and growth opportunities are subpar compared to other retailers. Work load is impossible with the amount of payroll hours allocated each week. Delivering the Whole Hearted Promise to each client should come first, but again with work load there is no time to focus on the Client experience.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employess and let their opinions count and be heard.
