Pros

If you are good at your job you are usually given a free ability to pursue your job under your own discretion. You need to work hard at the Bellingham location or people will definitely hound you. It is a fairly competitive culture, as with any sales based environment. The benefits are quite good even for part-time employees.

Cons

There are a few occasions of micro-management. Not many opportunities for advancement or for skill building.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't underestimate the value of honesty and respect to the people that you manage. However many people that you believe you have fooled into failing to see through your fake character, subtract about 50% of that to get the true number.

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Great Discount, teaches great sales techniques and easy to move to different positions within a store and easy to transfer to different branches.

    Cons

    Huge pay difference between pay from people in same position, no benefit for senority and no sense of order in terms of pay scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more reasonable pay scale, promote from within. put less pressure on leadership which will translate to less pressure on sales staff

    A great place for PT and FT, after that it's a little downhill.

    Pros

    The discounts and perks are amazing! It's a fun, low stress place to work if you are a line level employee.

    Cons

    The Supervisors inside of the store are often placed with the greatest workload, and often times receive multiple direction from Managers who are not on the same page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because someone is young, doesn't mean that they are incapable of performing the roles and responsibilities of a Manager elsewhere in the store.
