    Pros

    99% of the people are great to work with, as with any job there are always a few morons.

    No health benefits, a lot of young workers that need to be led around like a toddler. It's a job! You don't do your job, you should get reprommanded or fired. This is the real world folks!

    Advice to Management

    Wholeheartedly love the new fall 2014-15 upper management. They care about their people. Individual supervisors not really thrilled with.

    Pros

    Excellent communications and pay. Very "googly" management and coworkers.
    Although is a sales job, is not mainly focused on sales but more about the customer experience

    Cons

    Employment can and will end without much notice because of changing market conditions and business needs.
    Not a career company but a great seasonal job.

    Advice to Management

    Dont promise the sky and then fall flat in the face. This is for both the client and the employees in the stores
