    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Clothes discount, Flex hours schedule, Sales include employee discount, access to good clothing brands

    Cons

    Pay rate is minimum wage with fairly low commission rates - customers mainly purchase all the clearance/special sales items, you have to surpass a high sales goal to start earning commission ~ tough to make decent money. Too much emphasis on opening credit card accounts despite the current state of economy where customers clearly do not want more debt. The associate breakrooms and backrooms are dismal at best - tough to keep you happy & peppy to work there sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Too much focus on "magic" selling to customers and being "All In" but not enough focus in making your sales associate feel the "magic" to work there with higher pay rates and more bonuses. We have rent, bills, car payments, medical expenses, childcare, etc to pay and it's pretty tough to make ends meet with current pay rates and lack of appreciation.

    Pros

    Good Employee discount, I work early shift, so I get out early, good if you have kids,

    Cons

    Poor communication, Difficult to move up unless management likes you

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect, there are many employees that have college degrees and get treated like they have a grade school education.
