    Retail Torment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPhenomenal gift shop, truly something for everyone. Always considered a "favorite destination" by the customers. The patrons are what make the job tolerable.

    ConsThe owners have a reputation around the area for being "extremely hard to work for". We always convince ourselves that it is "sour grapes talking" or that the person just wasn't a diligent employee. This is NOT the case. They have several tremendous sales people highly dedicated to making the store a great shopping experience... but trust me... it's never good enough. Don't let the atmosphere of the front of the store fool you... there's a reason an "accepting job applications" sign is affixed to the shop window 365 days a year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWasted breath... they don't care. It's always the shortcomings of someone else.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Revolving Door

    Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsInteresting place with varied merchandise, high foot traffic, nice customers and some co-workers very nice to work with.

    ConsCompany has high revolving door. Owners have reputation for paying well in retail market because expectations are unreasonable. Not many last long. Very few long term employees. They are constantly hiring and their last ad wanted "sales people who can sell to replace those who thought they could"...insulting. Poor management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no advice. It would not be accepted anyway.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
