    Pros

    easy, great pay, benefits, flexiable, opportunity to advance, gifts, incentives, bonuses. overall you will learn and be rewarded on top of pay. i am happy with working here.

    Cons

    little training so you will basically teach yourself until you attend certain vendor trainings, also it gets pretty unorganized with how we work on the floor and what we have to offer customer

    Advice to Management

    work out certain kinks with boosting productivity.

    Pros

    Strong focus on development of staff in terms of skill sets and career progression. Great family environment to work in, where there is a strong emphasis on teamwork. Management walk the talk with their actions when it comes to practicing the 7 values of the company.

    Cons

    Irregular hours unlike your usual 9-5, Monday to Friday work week. This means some personal sacrifices in terms your own social engagements will have to be made.

    Pros

    Good employee benefits. If you are crazy for brands, this is tthe place for you. They offer 25-35 % discount on all regular priced products at their outlets. And trust me it covers the biggest of brands that you can think of, including Tag heuer,Longine, Omega, Estee Laude, Fendi, Marc, Coach, Chanel, Hennessy and list goes on.

    Cons

    Small environment for IT folks. Though on one hand it means less work load, on the other hand it is you loose the opportunity to learn new things.
