Pros

Flexible Schedule

That's about it. It's upsetting that there is a twenty word minimum on this post.

Cons

Everything Else.

Aside from the flexible schedule this is the worst place I have ever worked. Borderline minimum wage with 1% commission is laughable. They consider full-time at 30 hours.

Advice to Management

Change your corporate structure before everyone that protested WalMart realizes you pay less and offer less benefits to your employees.
