Pros

Great training in the retail industry and customer service, but manager and co-workers are a bit hit or miss.

Cons

Disillusionment on the glamorous and fun side of retail. Pushes too hard for the ideal situation when that never really happens

Advice to Management

Be more realistic and offer better opportunities for growth and development

    Pros

    commission based, anniversary sale, employee discount, reasonable hours compared to the real world

    Cons

    company does not treat you as well as they should, workers get last pick of anniversary sale, yet they dangle merchandise in your face
    people were not suited for college grads/students

    Advice to Management

    Hire higher end, more well educated individuals for higher end departments. No one wants to buy a $300 blouse from someone who doesn't look like they can spell a multi-syllabic word.
