    Pros

    Good company and great people. The managers were really nice but at times weren't really helpful. You get really good discounts and if your into fashion this store would be great for you.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of pay. It's a whole lot of work just for minimum wage. Sometimes the manager were never really helpful, because it is an independent job. They were really strict about keeping everything in order.

    Pros

    I enjoyed helping the customers and taking care of the store. I mainly worked in the backroom receiver and home department.

    Cons

    Managers were under qualified and many were inexperienced college students or new grads. They also tend to have an ego problem and were extremely lazy. On one occasion a young lady who was the manager at time cried at the end of the night because we had a lot of stuff to do and she wanted to go home. Only the general manager was good and she ended up quitting because of how bad the other managers were, no team work what so ever. Wage was horrible and so was employee discount.

    Advice to Management

    Only hire managers with several years of experience with retail company or has managed other retail stores.

    Pros

    The fun personalities of the people you work with, the breaks that the company provide you with, the appreciation they sometimes show you for the work you did for the month depending on the location they will use money you've earned as a team to buy stuff for you to do things with like order food or give gift cards.

    Cons

    Being ruthless to letting you go because of personal issues no matter what you've contributed or how long you've worked there. It's a business what can I say. They have a 0 tolerance for being late or absent. If you're late one minute you're considered late. They count how many times which isn't a lot to go around in a year then you're gone. No matter what the personal issue is. They have an open door policy which seems to turn into an open gossip club which if you're not careful about what you're being open with can get you in trouble. You don't get paid for the work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Stop saying I don't know to every question asked to you by your employees. If you don't know who does? Don't be jealous because an employee is good at something you like to do in the store. Tell them you appreciate them and their hard work because they are your foundation. Without them your kingdom will fall. If the kingdom falls the city falls, if the city falls the whole hierarchy falls.

    Pros

    You get great benefits even as part time and if you do a great job you can continue to climb up in the company. You get discounts and people are polite. As long as you are on task and helpful then everything is perfect.

    Cons

    I honestly don't have any cons. I enjoy my work space.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work!!
