    Pros

    Overall company is ok, but I can't think of much else that's a pro other than it's a job.

    Cons

    This store had horrible managment in 2008. The managers kept flip-flopping on the return policy. Instead of following the gigantic sign hanging up, they would go on a case-by-case basis. There was a 30 day wait to be trained as cashier. My first 30 days, I was in the fitting room and lingerie while the girl who got hired at the exact same time as me worked the register.
    My raise was only 5 cents after 6 months. They hardly ever let me work mornings unless it was the weekend. They acted like laughing and talking was the worse thing ever, but we had to get through all the work somehow.
    Despite working well over 40 hours a week in the summer, I only got paid for 39.
    We were supposed to rotate jobs, but they only let the same people do certain tasks.
    Toward the end of my time there, the managers started making me work 3 different areas at a time, plus help with item recovery afterward. It was too much, so I finally had to end it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to "spy" on management. I guarantee they're not as great as they are when you visit.
