Pros

Flexible schedule for college students

Cons

Poor wages starting at sales associate and even worse for sales leader considering the excessive demands of the management

Advice to Management

Pay all employees better if you're going to demand sales leadership from the bottom up.

    They need to learn to be realistic with their talent. You can't afford to have the best then don't expect the best!

    Pros

    Stores are nice size to work in, unlike the big box retailers.
    Customers are happy in here and pleasant to interact with.
    Store smells great.

    Cons

    Only schedules short 4 hour shifts unless you are in management.
    Store layout is ever-changing and chaotic. Hard to fit merchandise into planned space.
    Time for setting displays is not enough and only done off hours - late Sunday nights.
    Salespeople must push credit card and sales like commissioned employees without the extra pay.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic expectations of your plans and provide enough payroll and time to carry it out.
    Take better care of your employees to lessen turnover.
