    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Great work environment
    Great atmosphere
    If you like providing great customer service then this is the job for you where you'll be required to push metrics like the loyally card program as well as credit cards and the No Sweat Protection Plans on qualified merchandise in the store.

    Cons

    Horrible pay
    Ok managers (main reason is the managers in the store I work in rarely provide you with help when you need it most and expect you to be like a robot and be at more than one place at a time). Or other words they like to overwork you.
    They're several people that will walk in and demand things and be rude every now and then.
    When it is busy, you are swamped left and right with customers and you're the only one in that department.
    They often have you scheduled by yourself either working freight on the floor when truck comes and/or cover 2-4 departments at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Do not assume your employees are robots.
    Please respect your employees, or else it will come back and bite you in the behind (in verge of calling hr on my boss soon)
    Please provide help when your employees need it
    Do not take out anger on employees

    Pros

    I guess some pros are it's casual sports clothes, lots of jobs to choose from and part time also gets some benefits that full time gets.

    Cons

    The pros are unorganized training, hours are not very good, and managers weren't very helpful during or after the orientation.

    Advice to Management

    Getting better organized because training is terrible! I form. Us of the important things we need to know the day before our first day! Don't treat us like burdens because you had to train us were new we need help too!
