It's an OK job

Associate Trainer (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA

ProsI like the customers and most fo the people I work with

ConsIt's hard to move up in the company. Your lucky if you get a $.25 raise max at your review time (which they never show you so you don't know what they really write)

Advice to Senior Managementyour experience should count for something, not how cute you are (at least that's how it is at my store)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
