    Pros

    If you are a positive person and (I must stress this second point) in the correct department, you will do well. If you let your manager and HR know you want to move up in the company they will help you. If you happen to be in a bad-fit department where maybe your manager doesn't love you or isn't too supportive, it won't be as easy.

    Cons

    During sales and events the hours are ridiculous. There are several black out dates where you can't take off and during those times work extra long shifts with quick (I'm talking 15 minute) lunch breaks.
