Pros

Easy to ask for time off or change of schedule

Cons

Feels like a sweatshop, you can't even interact with other employees while on the floor

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should treat its employees with respect, and allow them to complete their tasks without micromanaging the way the do it. They often act like drill sargeants rather than co-workers.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate  in  Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Seattle, WA

    Pros

    Discount, friendly coworkers and a good sense of teamwork.

    Cons

    Higher expectations than reasonable. Selling incentives ditched for a "C.A.S.H. (customers appreciate service here)" program, but because the target goals were so high and ridiculous, our team made it once in 12 months. Management completely out of touch with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication is essential. Follow up more frequently.
