Pros

beautiful place to work, decent discount. But underpaid for overwhelming workload - constantly looking for motivated staff but lack of hours available to part time staff causes retention issues. The problems with this company are similar to other retail companies.

Cons

need to upgrade pay plan. need to retain talent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to staff on the frontlines for ideas about employment situation and for a better idea of what customers really want. Recently upper mgmt asking what we need. It remains to be seen if they act on suggestions
