    Pros

    Depends entirely on which store your at but normally very good employees to work with.
    Advancement from associate to consultant which really isnt any different is quite easy.

    Cons

    Store management was incompetent.
    Disregarded employees schedules and individual needs.
    Definite safety hazards.

    Pros

    My co-workers were great to work with and were always willing to help out the customers when needed. It was a fun environment though sometimes it could get hectic in the Impress Dept. They provided whatever hours that were requested by the employees and very flexible with scheduling.

    Cons

    - Pay scale was low
    - Tough customers to please at times
    - Management only cared about sales and not customer service
    - Push ridiculous methods of improving sales numbers
    - VERY high turn-over rate

    Advice to Management

    On the right track.. increase the pay scale a bit to be more competitive with the job market in order to keep your employees interested!
