    Great working environment with friendly, upbeat coworkers.

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsVery dedicated to company values, supportive, friendly, helpful, empathetic, and great entry-level job for those looking for employment. They are always seeking for talented people who are willing to learn and work in a fast-paced environment.

    ConsNo commission; however, more hours if you earn them. Criticism may seem negative at first, but if you respond well to criticism, it will do more good than harm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReally reach out to your associates and make sure they are aware of company values to have more of a reason to work there. I love working for this company because there is background on the company, rather than just working for a company blindly hiring employees with no context.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
