    Pros

    good pay, discount is pretty good, nice people to work with

    Cons

    associates are accountable based on productivity, sales get competitive and can feel almost catty, clothes have a good associate discount but are still somewhat expensive, some workers are very judgmental

    Advice to Management

    eliminate individual productivity and base it on the store
