    Probably would be a better short time job than a long term career.

    Pros

    I moved up to management within a year of being employed with the company.
    Loved my coworkers when I first started and everybody wanted to help each other out.
    Ability to really help customers plan their events.
    Great discount on product.

    Cons

    High turn over rate.
    Expected to work just as hard as any of the other higher paid managers but with no compensation to match it.
    Expected to go to other stores to help with projects with little to no recognition or gratitude.
    No incentive to stay pay wise.
    Huge cut in payroll hours in recent years.
    Need to have open availability for management which is understandable but when you aren't getting paid enough to support only one job it is hard to like your job anymore.
    Some of the managers are more willing to gossip about how awful they think some of the employees are instead of properly training them so that they have the chance to succeed..
    Expect new employees to work just as hard and with little to no errors with very little training.
    Corporate expects you to do the same thing at least twice if not more and does not provide extra hours for you to fix their mistake.
    Very little feedback requested from the store level. Corporate just blindly seems to throw out ideas without seeing if they really do work or not. There focus just seems so backwards and they are more worried about getting as much money from the business while having very dissastified employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a better more effective training

    Pros

    Discount .... That really is it

    Cons

    Horrible pay. Treated poorly. Stressful. No room for improvement. Bitter management. Sexist.
    No fun aloud.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay us more and stop expecting us to be super heros. Treat us better too! Lighten up!!! Customers want fun not misery!
