    Pros

    Great company if you are self driven. Make a name for yourself early, and play the political card.

    Cons

    To mentor you on the job, they teach by embarassment. You will be put on the spot numerous times to answer questions as to what you would do in situations and merchandising. Study the manual they give you. You will NOT get the amount of training they promise.

    Advice to Management

    Training classes are needed for management on how they speak to employees. We get plenty on how to handle the customer. I had this training in my previous job. I wish my store manager had also.

    Pros

    I work as a part time sales associate/ front end supervisor/bridal consultant and most of the people who work for this company are extraordinary people who actually care about this business. They also hire a lot of college students and are really flexible with changing school schedules which is nice. A lot of businesses won't do that. In general, the work environment is friendly and the managers work just as hard as the hourly employees.

    Cons

    If you are closing at a store, don't expect to get out on time. And even if you are asked to stay late, don't expect to get everything done for the night. My store in particular is very understaffed and freight often gets piled up for days until the manager calls an over night shift to take care of it.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have more sales associates on the floor at a time. Especially for closing shifts. Between recovering, helping customers, and trying to get Beyond store orders, it is almost impossible to finish all the freight for a given night.

    Pros

    Everyone was very nice. Positive workplace. Good training.

    Cons

    Occasional minor overlook on when the minors were supposed to leave. I would occasionally leave at 11pm even though it's against the law for us to work past 10:15.

    Store manager would also be extremely rude to some of the employees and even one of the other managers. When confronted about the issue he apologized to the manager and just said "He's having a bad day". He would continue to be rude to some employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep your feelings in check and be organized about how you handle juggling stock replenishment and customer service
