    Pros

    The 40% discount... great at the store level if you have the right team.

    Cons

    Sales goals not reachable with merchandise levels allocated to stores. Spent the last two or more years with a constant customer wait list for certain sizes of basic items. Company never able to forecast and allocate merchandise according to store specific sales trends. Merchandise quality declining... more fit and workmanship issues as time progresses. Managers expected to control conversion and drive sales but payroll running at rock bottom and managers unable to staff sales floor to meet the needs of corporate projections. Conversion... every store manager's nightmare. Based on - as the IT guy who de-installed my POS equipment at store closing said - "crap" hardware - not using good equipment and holding managers accountable. So behind the times technologically it is almost laughable... no internet or email at the store level??? Still??? In 2010??? Many changes at the corporate level and few left in Hollywood seem to be able to look beyond the desk in front of them and take a realistic look at what they are expecting from store level employees. I came in to the company during bankruptcy and waited for times to get better... underpaid and stayed because I felt loyal to the brand. In the end, things are so financially unstable almost 9 years later, I was notified on a Thursday that the store's last day of business would be in 12 days.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother... they NEVER listen?
