Great summer job

Sales Associate (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

ProsSchedule flexibility, overall ease of job, great people to work with, pleasant management. It's the perfect summer job in college or fresh out, when you're looking for a "real job"

ConsAn ape could be a sales associate there, and for the most part, the people they hire have IQs at that level. Your managers are basically glorified babysitters and spend their day patrolling teenagers to get off their cell phones or stop smoking cigarettes on the loading dock.

Advice to Senior ManagementHold your employees more accountable for their mistakes. I remember seeing one employee constantly reprimanded for the same thing, but because there were no repercussions, they contented to do it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
