Decent company to work for

Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Boston, MA

ProsYou get a pretty good discount (50% on all candles and 25% on other fragrancing items like reed defusers, car freshners, etc.) The customers are generally pleasant (at least more so than what some other retail stores have to deal with) and the work isn't difficult.

ConsThe salary starts out low and raises are few and far between. Also, the shifts can go by really slow when business is slow, which is about 8 months out of the year (excluding the holiday season which can get really busy).

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't take wax so seriously.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
