    Pros

    The other sales associates and most managers/supervisors are friendly and easy to get along with.
    Discount on items from H&M and Cheap Mondays, but only from in-store purchases.
    If you want to move up quick, or work on a position, management is willing to help with your goals.

    Cons

    Inconsistency with communication from Management.
    Raises are a tricky issue, as it is not always worth the time and energy spent working here.
    I've had an issue with getting my yearly performance review from 2011, which I finally got a month ago in 2012. Because of the lapse of timing in which it was written, the review did not accurately describe my performance from 2011, which also made a chance for a raise less likely to happen.
    I've been working for this company for over 2 years, and I still don't feel appreciated for all of the hard work that I do, nor have I gotten a raise (as stated, raises are tricky).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Basically, showing appreciation for all of your employees' hard work would benefit all of us. I would also suggest that Management not play favorites, this is the real world, not High School. I've been through at least 3 different cycles of Management at my store, and I've felt used and taken advantaged of just so managers and supervisors could get all the praise. Also, caring more about your employees' health and personal lives should be practiced more often. If I call out sick or say it's a personal reason, do not start prodding and asking why. It's disrespectful and against the law.
