Pros

Flexible hours, work isn't hard just tiresome. They are really good about fitting work around school and all other activities. It is a great place to start working while in college or looking for good work experiance.

Cons

Customers are idiots. Advancement opportunities go to people that kiss ass, not the best performers. It was very discouraging when some smuck gets a promotin over you when you have a degree in Business Administartion and they are in "the right place at ther right time".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for people that are actually willing to devote themselves to the team not your best friends

    Pros

    There is an excellent discount, tuition reimbursement, good company philosophies like "have fun while being the best".

    Cons

    Unfair pay scale, partial management, gets boring, supervisors etc constantly stay on your ass to do better. Even when you're doing your best at sales, there is constant bitching to do more. The supervisors at my particular store are all lazy and unqualified. Managers do little to combat theft in stores, and are too lenient when angry customers are involved. Ex, one day a little kid carved a dollar sign into an expensive TV with a thumbtack. Kids father was playing the piano display and not supervising the kid. Management said nothing. Ex., One day a angry customer cursed me out horribly, and for no reason. Management did nothing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new supervisors, be fair on pay scale
