    Pros

    The atmosphere was fun and on trend. They always had new music and music videos playing and let us crank it up. The fixtures were nice and up to date.

    Cons

    The business was failing, although they didn't even hint towards that in the many interviews I had. New merchandise stopped coming in, which was no surprise when I found out they were filing bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    I learned a lesson to ask about the stability and future growth of the company before accepting the offer. Not every company would give much information in an interview, but I would like to atleast know about my future opportunities.

    Pros

    Family-like atmosphere for a start-up business that grew fast with many entry level and senior level opportunities.

    Cons

    Too many entry level and senior level opportunities were the perfect ingredients for a disaster. Many errors were made, which were not caught before it was too late.

    Advice to Management

    Next time, pace yourself & only bite off what you can chew.
    In a lousy economy, save some cash, will ya!
