    Pros

    Friendly younger co-workers, fun atmosphere to work in, and great employee discount.

    Cons

    Upper management puts too much pressure on store managers to do better everyday which causes problems with sales associates. If you don't sell enough you might get your hours cut the following week.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with better products and ideas that make it easier to sell than just forcing store management to sell more of the same product based on LY

    Pros

    discounts, that's pretty much it, every now and then you may get a chance to win prizes

    Cons

    there is a lot of favoritism and outside influences, tons of drama and unprofessional by management, no work life balance and expectation to do 60 hours of work in 40 hours

    Advice to Management

    use the open door policy how it was intended. you can't use this to force others out because your upper management doesn't like someone, and confidential calls means that stop giving out info on the caller
