    Pros

    Great starter job, Great place to learn retail, Management and other employees are fun to work with, job is fairly easy

    Cons

    No chance to move up, no pay increases, no benefits, no communication between corporate and retail stores, terrible customer base

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees more hours, make the store nicer so people don't constantly trash it, reward employees for staying with the company, create better customer base

    Pros

    Good company for working moms. Everyone has kids so everyone understands if something comes up.

    Cons

    The most negative environment I have ever been in. Everyone is miserable and complaining about everything. Twilight zone of misery. I don't understand it. Not just my store...it's everywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just smile every now and then ya grumps. Everything is going to be okay.
