Pros

Learn lots of different business related tasks such as supply chain, accounts payable/receivable, and purchasing. Sales will be the focus; however, real life experience will be gained with regards to communication and the numbers game. Use as stepping stone, or career; its up to the individual.

Cons

Not enough support staff. The store never has enough staff members; instead we have to constantly train a new part-timer.

Pay structure needs to be adjusted for inflation and COLA.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow down on the layer building. We have way too many mid-level managers.
