    Pros

    Friendly customers, fun environment. the training isn't too bad either. You have an oppurtunity to bonus at part-time which is cool.

    no comission, the bonus plans are crappy for some of the departments that have to work harder than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The bonus should be more.
