Pros

It was very well rounded. I met with people from multiple departments that worked with my supervisor. Everyone was open and shared as much information as they sought after.

Cons

During more than one round, the people I was scheduled to interview with had changed. Furthermore, it was a bit dragged out, considering the position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Since it was a bit dragged out anyways, ensure the people that are interviewing have a very free/flexible day. Rather than dragging out the number of rounds, drag out the timing.

    Pros

    The pay is very good compared to most retail chains. The working hours are also good. They really don't change much even at Christmas.

    Cons

    They hire managers based on personality and not qualifications. The majority of sales associates are usually more qualified than the managers. They will not hire within the store for a manager. They go outside for candidates. There is little to no opportunity for growth in this company so try to start at the highest point possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more qualified managers and promote from within.

    Please be aware of what goes on out on the sales floor by participating and interacting with employees and customers.
