    Pros

    Their clothes are on trend.
    You can buy the clothes before they are put on the sales floor.
    The sales associate are easy to get along with.
    The music is good, if you like mostly indie pop and rock.
    You get a lot of experience in a short amount of time.
    You learn a lot about fashion, if you pay attention.
    Their clothes are inexpensive.
    I personally think this store has the best visuals of any fashion apparel retail store I have ever been to, but it depends on who the visual manager is.

    Cons

    The discount is only 10%.
    They have very strict rules, such as their bag-check policy.
    They have a very strict return policy (no returns).
    They have very poor customer service.
    There is a lot of favoritism, especially in hours and promotions.
    Part-time employees often have to work full-time hours and do not receive benefits.
    There is a lot of drama.
    After working there for over a year, I was getting paid less than the new hires that I was training.
    The new management is completely disrespectful to employees.
    Corporate does not communicate with anyone who is not management.
    Customers are disrespectful to the store and the employees, but who can blame them.
    Their clothes break very easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect, appreciate, and listen to employees. How well they perform their job affects your job too.

    Pros

    fashion forward. ... yep thats it..

    Cons

    working crazy hours,extremely hostile work envirement (even with the fellow employees) which includes working over night for a week every 2 months while in school. managers are very mean and make sure to remind everyone of how disposable they were ( heard this almost everyday) I was promoted to an accessories specialist and was never givin my raise. there is also no communication throughout the managers in the store. you will most likely get depressed working here due to long hours, rude customers and managers and a bunch of employees ready to talk badly about you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your emploees like people. This place is the most hostile work envirement.
