Pros

Free bras constantly, every time they come out with a new bra, they give you that bra for free. The discount is decent at 30% and we pretty much got first dibs on sale items. Also, they let you request what pay you would like to receive, and they will most likely give it to you if it is not outlandish.

Cons

They forced you to push their credit card, which as a person with a knowledge of personal finance, was a ridiculous card to have and for moral reasons I refused to push on anyone. Also, I was once told that because I look like a "Barbie" I should be the "model" that greats customers, as a future attorney, I didn't appreciate the analogy. Also, I broke my ankle while working there and they wouldn't let me lean on anything while working the floor because it was "company policy". And for those concerned with hours, you are forced to be on call a certain number of days in the week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

From my experience in working retail, do not put all of your focus on the customer, be kind to your employees and they will help you sell even more. I was a great employee and I was treated terribly.

    Underpaid and overworked. Managers contradict their selves a well as each other.
