    Great Retail Job!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis company has a fun and friendly culture, family owned, nice product, benefits are decent and a generous employee discount. You have the ability to own your business as if it were your store. Work/ life balance is about as good as you can get in the retail industry. Suggestions and feedback is listened to by upper management.

    ConsThere are not too many downsides to this company. There is not a ton of room for growth and you don't have all the extra perks of working for a large corporation.

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

    Not quick enough...unethical and small minded

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat discount, decent wages. Most of the employees in the stores were great to work with. The merchandise was decent.

    ConsHuge amount of nepotism in hiring at corporate. Unprofessional at the director and above level. Out of state benefits were awful. Marked favoritism and gossipy. Zero growth potential. Zero development or ongoing training. Little brand recognition. Strange visual elements and untimely cadence.
    Worst inadvertent racial overtones.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe professional and impartial. Treat all employees the same. Try for some racial variety. Stop allowing corporate officers to hire their friends. Make your visuals more market and installation appropriate.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
