    Pros

    Great "stepping stone" for a real career later. Very structured, lots of support, but micromanaged. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Unreasonable demands consumarate to the compensation. 60-70 hour work weeks are quite common during the summer months. This is essentially a retail management position so you work weekends, holidays, etc...

    Advice to Management

    From a stock-holder's perspective, I think you are incredible!! As an employee, you could definitely loosen the pursestrings and staff the stores accordingly.

    Pros

    Pretty nice salary, laid back atmosphere, can advance pretty quickly if you do your job well, fun teams

    Cons

    Sexual harassment issues if you are a female (although once a complaint is made they handle the situation pretty quickly), customers that bring in a lot of business are allowed to treat you as poorly as they choose, many more hours than what they tell you.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for employees instead of allowing the customer to run your store.
