Pros – Wonderful opportunity to work with some highly talented people. The outlet division is populated with people that have enough insight into the business, they should be running the entire company The customers are the best!
Cons – Financial issues meant no raises, no opportunity to advance.
Advice to Senior Management – Should have filed reorganization rather than full bankruptcy. Factory stores were leading the way and under Liz Hayward's direction, could have gone far.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – I'm sure it's different in each store, but the Maple Grove, MN store was fun and personable. Not only were my co-workers fun to be around, but the customers were wonderful too. This is the only job were most of our regular customers would come in once a month, and some once a week.

Advice to Senior Management – Thank you for a fun time.
