    Pros

    Fun work environment, generally nice employees, thorough training & a great discount for good quality clothing. Room to grow

    Cons

    High pressure to sell w/ no commission, you're given high SPA goals and if you don't reach them you're treated less than other employees. Also for girls, heels for work is dress code. Can be fun but also painful after awhile

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to pressure you're employees to sell so severely, maybe offer a bonus or something a little more worth it than positive recognition.

  2. Potential to be very rewarding
