    Ok to work at. You have to be flexible with your schedule as it is never consistent.

    I worked at Paradies Shops full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, Benefits, Vacations, Airport Environment. It is fun to work at the airport and meet the customers because they are from all over. The pay is higher than most retailers. If you are full time then after a year you get 13 days of vacation. They offer good medical and some of the choices come with dental and vision.

    Cons

    Rules, very strict. To early of shifts. If you are morning person then you will be ok but if you are not then you will have a hard time coming to work at 4 in the morning. If you call out because you are sick then you can get written up. If you are late a few times then you can get fired. Sometimes the store are super slow and they won't let you sit down or read or anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out on the sales floor more to know the workers. Help the team leaders to be better leaders.

    Pros

    Meeting new people, airport environment, 50 % discount, nice people.

    Cons

    Management isn't very good. The company seems to run by armatures. They want you to do everything and do not really help you out. They will send people home because of overtime and expect other members in other areas to do everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying so much about hour or 2 overtime and causing yourself and employees mayhem. No need to take stock associates off stocking just because you sent a cashier home early.And have no one to cover. YOU get in yourself then. Then expect to have all stores stocked after covering for a cashier or even covering breaks for mukltiple cashiers.
