    Pros

    you learn so much about fashion
    you constantly shop and work at the same time
    there are some downs to the staff but overall they make it fun
    the pay is really great, benefits and pto.
    we have an amazing DM that teaches us, encourages us, and is very respectful.
    working with such a big company, will definitely pay off if your trying to find another retail job.
    working with so many customers can be a challenge, but seeing some of those customers come back to see you for help it totally worth it.
    i like the 10min break thing, ive never had that any where else so its nice to be able to just sit in the back room for a bit.
    managers have their days but for the most part they are fun and are easy to approach
    love that the company is stern with their no cash back policy
    the hours are great

    Cons

    wish we could get more of a discount
    there are lots of procedures to follow which could get a bit frustrating and/or stressful.
    low staff some night which requires us to stay late nights; cause low payroll hours
    very low tolerance levels when it comes to things that have been done wrong;easy write ups.
    store gets super messy/trashed from some customers that are inconsiderate and rude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you shouldnt judge your managment team, until your in their shoes with this same company. its not easy, there is more to it then what meets the eye, you just see it from the outside. if you feel there is an issue address it, for us their should always be room for improvement to be a better manager. some issues we have no control over; raises,how many ppl we need to hire,etc.
