    Very organized, growth potential and unlimited earning potential. One of the most ethical companies I have ever worked for. Honesty and integrity above the norm for any company. A very enjoyable job. I highly recommend this company. Excellent training and support from your managers. Employee discounts are always good. Lots and lots of fun!

    Cons

    Can't think of any at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe reinstate the spiff program.

    Pros

    Company truly cares about its employees and my coworkers were great.

    Cons

    It's retail, so of course hours and weekends and holidays are going to be a challenge if you're expecting to work M-F 8-5 then this is not a good fit.
