    Pros

    -Very lax dress code. They don't care.
    - I made quite a few friends; decent people work there (they just don't like showing up for work ;p)
    -25% discount and 40% on special weekends

    Cons

    My new manager had favorites and if you were not one of them, sucks to be you. I was not one of them. Most employees would either not show up for work or wouldn't want to and never get penalized. I was sick one day and called and I got written up when other employees were never even given a verbal warning. They are also paranoid about internal theft and treat everyone like they are going to steal every time they are alone which was really not the case in my store. Also, if you work hard, forget ever get praised for it. Most of the time your managers will take credit for your hard work. They also like to make promises like giving you insurance and vacation after one year but then find a way to not give it to you. For me, my apparent full time position was actually a part time position (I never knew of this) and so according to them I would never receive vacation or health insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a less time being paranoid about your employees and more time applauding them for their hard work.
