Pros

Alright pay
Happy customer experiences (I've been hugged a lot)
Quick shifts
Nice coworkers
Good temporary job or for high school students

Cons

No room to grow within company
Poor management
Very short training period
Very few hours
Generally work alone
Disorganized
Stressful

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I definitely recommend giving the managers more hours to train new employees. It is a lot to learn in 8 training hours. Also, I think it's important that the current employees should be given more consideration when it comes to promotions.

    Pros

    Pleasing the customers is always rewarding, especially when it is personalized.

    Cons

    Corporate watches you like Big Brother. All the paperwork in any given day is ridiculously redundant, reporting figures to corporate on an hourly bases when they already have them. No
    lunch or bathroom breaks or even the availability to sit for 5 minutes in an 8 hour shift...almost inhumane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe even if corporate would just pretend to care...acknowledge the fact that we are humans too
    and at times need a little break.

    Pros

    not many, nice working with clients. 401k is nice

    Cons

    No support from DM, long hours, no breaks, high stress job, no off time, too much turn over with staff because part timers are paid too little for what they do so they leave for better jobs.
    exhausting and not enough coverage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more payroll to stores to provide better service
