    Pros

    Most of my managers were very nice and helped a lot. They taught me how to sell pretty well.

    Cons

    I noticed the longer that I stayed there that the managers started to decrease in quality and they would place people in positions they weren't ready for. A lot of stealing was noticed as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees deserve better treatment and pay.

    Pros

    Customer satisfaction
    Communication skills
    learning how to sell
    At times great management

    Cons

    If the manager is bad, it may be hard to learn the basis of the corp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because some can sell to customers really well, does not qualify them for a management position. If you can conquer that statement as a company, your store may see much better results.

    Pros

    As an intern they allow you to work as a member of a case competition which allows you to work in other areas. The projects are definitely meaningful to the company, but could definitely be classified as intern work,

    Cons

    Some interns were overworked and others were under worked. Also, the pay isn't minimum wage but isn't that great either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are several people who carry a lot more weight than others in terms of their work. Really try and decipher who those people are and who the dead weight is.

    Pros

    I am doing work that I love to do. The job is not very hard and allows me to work at my own pace. The job is not far so travel to and from work is very easy.

    Cons

    The job is seasonal. The hours vary too much. The job does not have enough employees so we as workers are required to do the job of three people each night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The supervisor should be able to communicate with the employees better. The Paid Time Off policies needs improving and I do not like the fact the HR department is closed during our shift.

    Cons

    Slow promotions, lack of strong leadership (district manager),

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It’s horrible to have a “leader” come in not knowing anything and just making decision of the top of their head. There is some every well qualified individuals that are ready to take her place. Won’t last long making decision the way they are making them.
