Pros

Casual dress code, never get bored

Cons

Too much workload for hours given, very unstable upper management, no support from HR

Advice to Management

Upper management would be more informed if they didn't expect a dog and pony show each time they visit. Promotion from within would give managers a deeper desire to stick around and continuity would help long term success. Sometimes expectations are out of touch with reality. Payroll and LP will always be a concern when you run on 1 person coverage for 1/3 of your business hours. Invest in conversion counters so that your data would be more relevant, just because you have more transactions does not mean you had more traffic, it could have to do with better customer interactions.

    Pros

    The discount was probably the best part of the job. It was a cool story and they had good product. It was also kept relatively clean and organized even during peak hours.

    Cons

    I only worked three hour shifts and they were few and far between. Also, I did not like the selling aspect of the store because they were incredibly pushy and it made my customers uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire more employees than you are able to take on and do not be so detached from reality that you think that customers want to be bothered during the entire duration of their shopping experience. It was excessive and drove out just as many customers as it dragged it.
