    Pros

    Flexible hours, managers who look out for your back, room for a lot of growth within the company.

    Cons

    It's retail. The only con is dealing with customers with a sense of entitlement. Other than that, this company is the best when dealing with their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Actually weed out the bad seed within management.

    Pros

    * great start off pay for entry level ($10.80 minimum)
    * company actually cares for workers (Christmas gift & bonuses if store does well)
    * managers care about you & store goals
    * good discount 25%

    Cons

    * hours are distributed to full timers first & then part timers get the rest
    * opportunity to move up requires people getting fired or stepping down
    * don't expect to get too much money around Jan-March because store hours come from business

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to ideas from sales advisors & do things in a more timely & effective manner. When people want to move up in the company give them the proper training & advice to do so.
