    Hectic holidays season retail but I knew what I was getting into!

    Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Reynoldsburg, OH

    ProsThe other employees tend to be fun! So in the midst if the work, you enjoy your shift. You get to try all the scents! And smell delicious at all times.

    ConsYou buy way too much! Inventory in the back is crazy! They change floor plans dates at a minute notice and that can mean unexpected late weekday nights. You have to be prepared for the holiday and semi annual rush. Be comfortable with the long lines and crowded aisles. :)

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy only advice is to be clear and have a standing floor set schedule.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent job for sales

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Newark, OH

    ProsUp to date info on the sales and new products. The store usually smells good

    ConsThe last minute floor sets and layout changes. Not all stores setup the same so layouts not always functional.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork in a smaller store and assist in last minute floor sets and see how the designing and sales department is not familiar with the smaller market stores.

    Good part time job with great discounts; however, there is immense stress on reaching sales goals.

    Sales Leader (Former Employee)
    Reynoldsburg, OH

    ProsGreat people to work with , many opportunities to work up in the company.

    ConsWork life balance is almost non-existent, especially when you reach management levels. As a sales associate you are asked to do an extraordinary amount of work for the small hourly wage you are given.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNurture good employees to feel empowered and want to be great so they will help create the greatest customer experiences. Reward those employees that are going above and beyond

    Appreciation lacking but many good points

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    ProsAmazingly talented pool of people, strong sense of community, constant learning

    ConsLack of appreciation for great results and dedication. Long hours, slim chances for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA little praise and recognition go a long way to creating happy employees - treat them like the talented folks they are. Don't forget who your customer is - it is not you in your corner office it is the lady in Average, USA who thinks your products are luxurious and a treat.

    I worked as a sales associate during Christmas.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Heath, OH

    ProsFlexible schedule, generous discount, free products.

    ConsI hardly got any hours because they hired 80 people fr the season. They also schedule for many "call-in" shifts where you must call in 2 hours before you are scheduled to see if you work and most of the time you do not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not hire so many people for the holidays.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
