Long Road To Nowhere

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsNice co workers.
Okay discount. Nice atmosphere. You can learn a lot here if you want to expand your knowledge in retail.

ConsHorrible pay, Horrible management, crap promotions. Too much politics involved. Benefits were too much out of my pay so I couldn't even afford them.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees enough so they can afford rent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
