    Pros

    Discount on clothes. Decent hours. Was offered the salary that I had asked for

    Cons

    I was given zero training after I was hired. On my first day, every thing was so unorganized and I was expected to know what style was in each department because they had figured that I had training, so I looked like a complete fool. I finally found my supervisor and had told her that I hadnt received any training yet. She had someone walk me around the entire store, the store in Chico, which is the one I worked out, is huge, and explain to me the styles in the briefest amount of time. Not nearly enough time to remember all of it. I was extremely disappointed in their management skills.

    Advice to Management

    Give your newly hired employees training before their first day
