    Pros

    If you like clothes the discount is nice, but you have to be careful not to spend all your checks. The coworkers were great, my manager was awesome.

    Cons

    Sometimes in retail, you have difficult customers and they were plentiful here. Some may get carried away with the discount.

    Pros

    Great place to learn about sales and management. They are definite opportunities of growth.

    Cons

    The turn around of managers does not allow an associate to have the chance to shadow a manager. The salary and strict non-overtime rules makes it hard for a dedicated worker to serve a customer or do their job correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your better associates better than you do the slackers. This will not only make them appreciate the job more (despite the salary) but they will be more willing to work with you.

    Pros

    Fast Paced. Training available. Great Customer Service experience. Employee discount benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours and late evening and holidays. Managers are constantly moving and changing.

    Advice to Management

    Relate more one on one with employees. Sometimes it can seem like they look at you more like a number on their roster rather than an individual.
