Great place for late teens to mid twenties

Store Manager (Former Employee)

ProsNo dress code, like minded coworkers, merchandise discounts. FT employees receive full benefits, 401k and stock options

ConsAs with any retail, the customers. Corporate (they prefer the term headquarters) has lost touch with previous core values, they were cleaning house when I left and a lot of people were let go.

Advice to Senior ManagementHold onto the people with tenure that still have a passion for the company. They are the ones driving your profits, not the products themselves.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
