    Pros

    Great first job. Fun working as a team. Opportunities to advance and try new things. Discounts are great. As a company, definitely seems to make strides and improvements.

    Cons

    Fast paced, not for everyone. POS has way to much to push onto Customers. Holiday shopping is insane. Hours can be unreliable. Quality of a store can vary widely based on who's running it.


  2. Honest Company. Good atmosphere.

    Pros

    Great employee training program, good teamwork atmosphere. Keeping customers happy was easy because they put a lot of power in the hands of employees.

    Cons

    It's retail, so the hours are lousy. That's why I left. It also gets really busy during Christmas, back to school, etc. Also, if you're not comfortable soliciting credit applications, don't take this job. Your managers will be pushing you to do it every day.

    Advice to Management

    Your employee base would be unprecedented if you upgraded their pay and hours.
