Pros

there really aren't any; i've worked with some great people and some bad people, but that's the same at any store or with any company.

Cons

corporate management is disorganized and changes frequently, wages are low and raises rarely happen, understaffing during business hours puts unrealistic expectations on employees, the customers treat employees very poorly and bring in very badly behaved children, the merchandise is poor quality and comes from countries that use sweatshops.

Advice to Management

give your employees are reason to care about their jobs, and maybe they will.

    Pros

    Wide range of skills to develop, personal growth, relaxed and friendly coworkers and management, good product, exciting...and don't forget the pizza parties.

    Cons

    Manages to be both overstaffed and understaffed at the same time. They're always hiring but none of the core associates get full-time hours. If you're a full-time sales associate they treat you like their slave, especially if they know you're childless. There was one time when I was essentially unemployed because sales were down and they could not afford to pay me. A lot, and I mean a LOT, of work and skill for just above minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    If you're only willing to provide minimum hours and minimum pay, don't expect more than minimum work. Treat employees and loer management with respect.
