    Pros

    Great discount. Managers are fun and easy to get along with. Never a boring day. Meet interesting people.

    Cons

    They base their entire payroll budget on sales goals that don't account for a lack of foot traffic or changing neighborhoods. They gamble with the budget and hourly employees pay for it in huge cuts and reductions. They have a lot of turn over because who can live paycheck to paycheck with 10 hours a week?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the payroll budget and give dedicated hours for tasks and stellar employees that go above and beyond.

    Pros

    Fun, fast paced and demanding. The company is growing and wants strong people to maintain momentum. Discount is awesome.

    Cons

    It can be a little demanding at times but hard work with a good attitude is rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the full spectrum of employees contributing to the success of the company. Not just positions where success is measured by profits.
