    Pros

    Co-workers are great and managers are understanding.

    Cons

    Head office pretends to know what's going on in stores, and base their evaluations on unfair criteria.

    Pros

    Good discount - 50%

    Cons

    Stock was extensive and hard to sort through
    Head office placed extreme pressure to hit targets (no commission) - should give more incentives to employes

    Advice to Management

    Should have some sort of commission system

    Pros

    There are very few, if any.

    Cons

    Low wages, no advancement, very poor management, no bonces. Manager, and assistant Manager take all sales if they are at the cash, but expect the lower employees to do all the costumer serves work.

    Advice to Management

    Get new trained management. They should be the biggest part of the team, not killing all the moral for everyone else.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great. Average pay and reasonable, flexible hours.

    Cons

    I became very sensitive to smells after working here for several months. After every shift (long or short), the scents from everything in the store you have touched or sprayed will cling onto you.
    The management at the location I was at was non-existent. It was left to the sales associates to manage their own schedules, do some hiring and training, locking up crunching the numbers, etc. It wasn't terrible, I came out of it gaining some experience in supervising a group of people. I just wish management was there a lot more to train us instead of allowing us to open the store and not leaving behind a manager.

    I ended up quitting because of the drama that went on. Working with a group of girls will almost inevitably lead to drama.

    Pros

    - Products are nice
    - Good discount on products
    - Bright clean decor
    - Hours are flexible
    - Training provided

    Cons

    - Employees are micromanaged (not in a good way) by head office
    - Forced to hard sell customers (no commission or incentives though)
    - Extremely boring
    - No room to grow in the company or increase wages
    - Sales goals are set way too high and are rarely obtainable

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to succeed rather than criticize for small shortcomings. No one wants to work in an environment where they feel unappreciated for their hard work.

    Pros

    Can be slow at times, and have breaks in between

    Cons

    The owner of the store was incompetent
    Forced to sell hard
    New owners constantly watching and cannot talk with each other when there are no customers

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop employees from interacting with each other even when there are no customers in the store.
