I have been working at Fruits And Passion part-time for less than a year

Pros

There are very few, if any.

Cons

Low wages, no advancement, very poor management, no bonces. Manager, and assistant Manager take all sales if they are at the cash, but expect the lower employees to do all the costumer serves work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get new trained management. They should be the biggest part of the team, not killing all the moral for everyone else.

    I have been working at Fruits And Passion part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great. Average pay and reasonable, flexible hours.

    Cons

    I became very sensitive to smells after working here for several months. After every shift (long or short), the scents from everything in the store you have touched or sprayed will cling onto you.
    The management at the location I was at was non-existent. It was left to the sales associates to manage their own schedules, do some hiring and training, locking up crunching the numbers, etc. It wasn't terrible, I came out of it gaining some experience in supervising a group of people. I just wish management was there a lot more to train us instead of allowing us to open the store and not leaving behind a manager.

    I ended up quitting because of the drama that went on. Working with a group of girls will almost inevitably lead to drama.

    I worked at Fruits And Passion part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Products are nice
    - Good discount on products
    - Bright clean decor
    - Hours are flexible
    - Training provided

    Cons

    - Employees are micromanaged (not in a good way) by head office
    - Forced to hard sell customers (no commission or incentives though)
    - Extremely boring
    - No room to grow in the company or increase wages
    - Sales goals are set way too high and are rarely obtainable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees to succeed rather than criticize for small shortcomings. No one wants to work in an environment where they feel unappreciated for their hard work.
