    Pros

    Great schedule, great Co workers, fun with customers and we were the #2 store in the whole company. One of the best jobs I've had

    Cons

    No cons other than I wish our store stayed open longer than most of the stores and that was because we were in a temp location and the lease were up so they closed our location fast before any other locations but at lease they gave us a chance to transfer with our same position and wage per hour especially when liquidators were paying our full salaries even with approved overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately this company declared back rupture in the middle of the Xmas season and we closed right after the new year

    Pros

    I did like the discount and counting jeans part of the job. I liked cashiering and watching the fitting room.

    Cons

    I didn't like the new management team and how unorganized they were. They chased away employees and when it was all said and done, they store closed too.

    Advice to Management

    If you knew better you could have succeeded and did better! Hire professional people and don't pin your managers against each other.

    Pros

    Fun environment, great coworkers, discount

    Cons

    Constant price changes and lack of hours.

    Advice to Management

    More payroll hours to help customers. It's hard being alone in a store for 4-5 hours at a time.
