    Pros

    Opportunity to work for an established brand that is highly regarded. Great corporate benefits. Great associate discount. As a retail job, it's a good one.

    Cons

    Poor management of associates and fellow managers - the GM has zero people skills and bullies her team on a daily basis. There is a considerable amount of pressure on management from corporate, NO management training anymore, laughable pay for the high expectations that corporate has for the managers, and very little understanding from the DM and RVP. on how to run a store with very little payroll.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what is happening in your stores - associates and managers are being abused and no one is listening. Your store managers are the front lines (if you will), and they take the heat for YOUR indecision regarding promotions and the no-backbone, wishy-washy return policy. No wonder the customers are upset - they are being barraged constantly with the credit card, email requests, inconsistent policies, you name it. It is very difficult to provide the level of customer service that WS customers expect without the support we need from corporate.


  2. Fun, but just a job.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Hardly any hope for full time. Even at part time they can only put you on for 9(total) hours in a week.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront about how many hours you will be able to work.
