I loved the overall environment because its a fun and laid-back atmosphere but nice enough to draw in loyal customers.

Prosdecent compensation

management was very understanding
very nice discount!
Practical dress code
diverse staff
good music!

Conssome of the sales strategies are too pushy
management expects you to use their sales tactics regardless of whether they work well for you or not
the style can be a little gaudy at times and they layer too much
they make you push the buckle "rewards" card (credit card) too much

Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes you know how to read your costumer and know that being too "pushy" will turn them off so it's actually better to ease up a little bit. Management needs to understand that not all of the sales tactics work on every customer. Also, if you have been involved in the presentation for a while, than you have probably figured your costumer out pretty well and don't need 2-3 other people telling you what else to show them on top of all of the things you already have. I hate exhausting a sale.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
