Pros

Flexible hours
No Christmas rush
No Black Friday
No back to school rush
No strict rules
Laid back environment
Closed on major holidays
Closes early
Balloons are fun
30% discount
About 15 employees per store and 15-24 hours per week.
It's a great place to work while in school and doesn't require a lot of commitment. Management lets you take a lot of time off for really any reason.

Cons

Very low pay
Harassing customers for personal emails and phone numbers
Halloween is brutal
Some areas are hard to clean
No rewards system for longevity or hard work
Very low raises, max 25 cents lowest 0 cents each year
Management takes advantage of hourly employees
Company doesn't value their hourly associates at all

    Pros

    Actually get to enjoy holidays( Halloween is their Christmas) , good pay, only 2 nights a week

    Cons

    Hardly ever promote from within
    Nepotism and favoritism are commonplace
    Get used to changing things 3 and 4 times

    Advice to Management

    Choose a path and follow it. It is hard enough to change things, let alone 3 and 4 times. Promote from within instead of hiring from the outside for management positions. You are going to lose good people because there is no communication why people that are falsely promised promotions do not get one.
