Pros

flexible with scheduling (would work around school if you needed to), employee discount was nice, always ran fun competitions between associates with prizes to see who could sell more.

Cons

pay rate in the long run was unfair (I had been there for over 2 years and had associates starting with no experience making more money than I did), head management was unfair and brought their personal problems into the workplace.

    Pros

    A lot of networking potential. Opportunities to learn different aspects of the company and procedures.

    Cons

    So much time changing marketing with each pricing change and rearranging the store. They are all about getting product out the door and not enough payroll to make to store presentable.

    Advice to Management

    Be ready to sacrifice a lot of home life.

    Pros

    Good employee discount, 30 to 40% and once a month 50% and accelerated outfit discounts
    Retail experience
    Flexible scheduling

    Cons

    Management can be a hit and miss, in my case i had a great manager and then they switched half the management staff and it blew big time, so bad i had to report my manager to the company.
    There is barely ANY hours to be given out no matter the time of year... beware of this if you want lots of hours in a job.
    Can be very tedious folding clothes and doing recovery especially when its slow...
    NO ROOM TO GROW AT ALL IN THE COMPANY!! You have to be 21 just to be a stupid sales lead...

    Advice to Management

    Stop overstaffing during the holidays
    Get more experienced managers
    Change promotions to management...
