ProsGREAT employee discount, and fun people to work with.

Constiring
overnight floor sets
pressure to get people to get store credit cards

Advice to Senior Managementi hated the pressure to get people to sign up for a credit card, i felt bad about signing people up for something that is not helpful for them financially.
