Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more respect for people who went to college to focus on their trade than hack fashion bloggers.

    Pros

    You get to wear great clothes, lots of giveaways, young atmosphere. Work with people with similar likes, can be fun at times.

    Cons

    Hiring is done by only hiring managers, takes time to set up interviews, only the best looking will receive the job. Upper management can be out of touch, or unrealistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more people a chance to work at your stores! There should be more district managers, upper management is spread so thin.
