    Pros

    Co workers can be very friendly. The wage isn't that bad, compared to other stores and companies. Pretty laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pressure to get people to sign up for ONCs is something that should be considered. It can be really stressful to learn that 100 in a year could be required. Also, insurance should be offered to part time people, as well as management training for those truly interested.

    Advice to Management

    Chill with the credit card demands. Offer the management training.

    Pros

    Management is very flexible with my class schedule. Great hands on experience and customer service principles.

    Cons

    I have had a great experience with this company. The only con that I can find is the turn around in employees and management. Consistency and stability are key factors in retail.

    Pros

    the customers and the coworkers and even the environment you work in is friendly and inviting. Job itself is pretty easy too

    Cons

    downsides wold be the amount of hours you get. Although it is part time, but they are very flexible with your schedule which is pretty nice

    Advice to Management

    hire some people to stay over night to fix and organize the shelves and tables, sometimes they get out of control.
