    Pros

    Benefits are amazing(Well at least when I was there), you can definitely get weekends off with prior notice(this is retail people, not a mon-fri office job) and the Gratis(i worked in cosmetics) was pretty awesome. The hours are great(when you're closing on a sunday).

    Cons

    You work weekends, thats the down side but it's retail. During christmas, it gets crazy so get ready to work overtime and come in extra early and leave extra late. You have to open up credits cards, I mean who really wants one anyways? That the one thing I didnt like, most people are up to their neck in debt and do not want to open another cc.

    Advice to Management

    Rotate weekends off so everyone is happy.

    Pros

    Beautiful store environment, good benefits, lots of diversity in staff, very inclusive.

    Cons

    Inadequate training, aggressive salespeople with high sales get preference over lower performing but customer rated favorably reviewed employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the high performers get away with treating their peers badly just because they bring in the numbers.

    Pros

    There are still a good amount of great sales people. It is only a matter of time until they leave or retire.

    Cons

    Management speaks to sales people only when business is down and only trying to find somebody else to blame. There is no real communication.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your sales people.
