Pros

Great benefits, great work life balance, great respect for employees, a great opportunity to learn new things. They truly respect family values and have bent over backwards to accommodate my schedule to allow me to work and take care of my family.

Cons

The most meeting happy place I have ever worked. Often you can have 7 1/2 hours of meetings in one day!

Advice to Management

Not really anything to add....still love working here.

    Pros

    You 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.

    Cons

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