Pros

High quality merchandise. Not much else.

Cons

Commission only with a base of minimum wage or just above for a draw vs. commission. This is an ancient pay structure. It is unethical, immoral and dishonest. They demand much more than they are paying for. Upper management "acts" like they care (I was a store manager) but it's all "lip service". Employees are cattle driven to the market and without a care about being real, living individuals. This company stinks with the way they treat their employees. They didn't treat me as bad as those who I managed. I had a hard time trying to replace employees because of the pay issues. The stores I know about averaged 2-300% turnover per year.

Advice to Management

Care about your employees as much as you care about your compensation package.

    Pros

    Yes policy to accommodate the customer. Great products and great reputation.

    Cons

    Starting pay very low you are told you can make commission. The sales are driven by discounting the merchandise so you cannot make commission. It is set up so you are stuck with the low rate of pay.

    Advice to Management

    Make the pay more fair by forget the commission at least in in the smaller stores where it is impossible to make commission.
