Pros

Great Benefits and discounts, great employees to work with, easy promotions for those who work hard and push for them, fun job for students without any prior work experience.

Cons

District Managers can be incompetent at times and the company is all about pushing numbers, you can do great one week and be praised but the next week you can do somewhat decent and be thrown in hell for it.

Advice to Management

Speak with your teams and let them know everything that is going on, treat everyone fairly like how you would like to be treated.

    Pros

    Met some amazing people there and have made life long friends. Occasional free shirts and promo stuff.

    Cons

    The company. It's goal is to sell, sell, sell. Lie, cheat, sell. You have to meet goal every month or you get written up. They can fire you and hire someone immediately. They don't care about your well-being. You have to bend over backwards for customers. The company will push you to your limit and it will literally eat away at your soul. Hours are cut if the store doesn't meet goal. You do way too much work for very little pay: manage cash register, alphabetize floor and back stock, trades can be extremely overwhelming, marketing, cleaning out trash, etc. Push reserves and subscriptions. Constantly ask customers to do surveys. The systems are hard to navigate sometimes and can be very slow.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a team, instead of trying to throw people under the bus or hogging all potential reserve/sub customers.
