Unique start to retail

Assistant Workshop Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsYou do a lot more than the usual day to day retail activities. The work itself can be a lot of fun to help kids and keep people smiling.

ConsThe hours are ridiculous. One week you're working 8 the next you're working 40 and there is zero consistency.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
