Great place to work!

Store Sales Manager (Current Employee)

ProsCompany culture; support of upper management; promotion opportunities; pay scale; bonus structure; vacation options; and it truly is (with the exception of Q4) a 40 hour work week.

ConsThe hiring process was very time consuming, required too many interviews and seemed unnecessarily repetitive. The interviews were somewhat daunting.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
