Pros

Fast Paced - Always something to do.
When hours are good - Theyre GOOD.
People are going to call out, which allows you to pick up shifts.
Meet people
Looks good on your resume because everyone knows Forever

Cons

Some of the worst clientele because of the affordability of the brand and the mass quantity product
Customers drop the clothes right on the floor when they dont like it and walk right on it.
Opportunity is given to the biggest brown noser on staff. or the manager just likes them.
if you want to move up! BE VERY VOCAL ABOUT IT. They wont notice your grind unless a customer walks up to the manager and tells them you were very helpful or you tell the manager yourself what a great job your doing.

Hours will go up and down anywhere from 12 hours - 30 hours a week. BUT THATS JUST RETAIL anywhere you work you will deal with that.

Advice to Management

pay closer attention to your sales associates as they are the backbone of the stores. they need to advance!

    Pros

    I was able to see all the new clothes and accessories that came in

    Cons

    The managers were extremely rude.
    -We were told that we were replaceable and weren't worth much to the company
    -I was told on occasion that I didn't look enough like a "model"
    -Weren't willing to work with you at all about ANYTHING
    -When I had stayed 3 hours past my shift and needed to leave, I was threatened that I would be fired even though I had already worked my scheduled time and it was 1am!!!

    Overworked and underpaid
    -They would make us stay WAY longer than we were scheduled to especially if we were the closing shift. Apparently when your shift ends at 10pm, it really means until the entire store is spotless which might not be until 1-2am
    -No opportunity to move up...you're stuck doing maximum work for minimum wage
    -Short staffed and you were expected to complete incredibly amounts of work in a short period of time

    Terrible Customers
    -Maybe it's just the area but most of the customers were either bratty rich teenagers or snotty trophy wives who thought they could treat the employees like crap

    Advice to Management

    Actually treat your employees like human beings. Don't hire store managers who talk down to their employees and threaten them. Allow your employees to leave after their scheduled shift ends...don't keep them longer because "10pm doesn't really mean 10pm"
