    Pros

    Decent pay, great employee discount. Scheduling could be somewhat flexible. Managers set reasonable sales goals, never felt extremely pressured though.

    Cons

    Some of the managers could be passive aggressive. Sometimes was forced to work a double shift if too many people in my department called out of work last-minute. Recently, new system was put into place where managers were nearly impossible to get a hold of in order for associates to learn to solve customer problems all by ourselves.

    Advice to Management

    Don't set unreasonable goals! And Be more accessible.

  2. Great place to work if your motivated, bad upper management!
