- Medical and Dental benefits for workers
- Clothing allowances are given out when sales goals are met

Cons

- Heavy amounts of favoritism

- Uncomfortable work environment

- Are expected to respond to emails at all times (even from home)

Advice to Management

Upper management should observe lower management more often. I worked under 3 different store managers, who would all spend over 2 hours per day browsing gossip websites or reading tabloid magazines.
