They make the pay sound better than it really is

Stylist (Current Employee)

Pros~The customers that come in make it worth-while.
~The experience and what you gain from working here (like knowledge of sales) is beneficial in making your resume look good.
~The discount.
~Working retail here is a bit different than your usual retail store. You really can learn a lot!

Cons~The discount. While the discount is good, it's not the greatest considering the prices of the products. If a product is already $200, the discount still leaves the item to be expensive. May not SEEM expensive, but when you're not making a decent income, it's a lot (especially for a college student).
~The commission. Before working there, the amount of money I was told could be made was very good. However, finally working there, commission is based off of the amount of sales you make hourly. So if it's a VERY slow day, it's probably not going to be easy to reach a good DPH (dollars per hour). Thing is, I thought commission was based on the amount of sales per day/week, not per hour (which I would think made way more sense).
~A co-worker (or more) may try and steal your clients.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere's no point is advising Management of anything. I doubt they care enough to make any changes.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
