Pros

Great discount and hiring and training your own team is great. Fun environment. Unlimited bonus opportunity. Visual freedom within your own four walls. Great pay and benefits.

Cons

No upper management support. When you are struggling you hear about it daily. When you are winning no one notices unless you are at the top. Lack of merchandise makes it hard to sell to your customers. To move up with this company you have to be able to relocate anywhere.

    Pros

    If you get along with your co-workers, shifts are actually pretty fun. Decent retail gig. As with all retail, a lot of the store environment depends on specific management and the teams they hire/their ability to run the store.

    Cons

    The power-plays and drama among managers start to trickle down and affect associates, resulting in a pretty high turnover rate. The pay and benefits are not that great, especially compared to other retailers. 30% discount and often minimum wage... occasionally a 45% discount but for how much you make it's not a whole lot. Hours can be unpredictable and unreliable (having to stay late, shifts being cut, etc.)


  2. No growth at all, rude and insecure managers

    Pros

    very easy job to have, just busy work, no thinking at all
    times goes by relatively fast given that music is pumping and you're constantly folding something

    Cons

    Quite dull
    If you are in the least bit intelligent, store managers will belittle you in fear of losing their "hard-earned" post
