It's a great place to work but be prepared to deal with the "politics"

Retail Sales Consultant (Former Employee)

Pros-Interact with new people on a daily basis

-Great sales experience

-Make new friends quickly

-Great employee discount

-Secure job as long as you aren't underperforming

Cons-Politics inside the stores sometimes make it a bear to work; favoritism is noticeable and brown nosers bypass hard working people in the ranks

-Management often already has decided who they are going to hire into an open position if it's internal before the interviews

-If your manager is stressed you will most likely know it; some leadership personalities are to be short and rude to get the job done

-Pay could be better if you consider how much money you make the company if you are one of the better salesmen

-Understaffing departments is a big big problem

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't take your bad day out on your employees.

When low level people have ideas, you should listen.

Take into consideration the hard working people in the store when it's time to hire for an open position...all too often people are promised things and then you don't follow through or somebody who doesn't really deserve the position based on what you SHOULD be measuring gets the job anyway.
