    Pros

    customer are excellent and is a great place to meet great hardworking people

    Cons

    company does not care about employees, everyone in corporate wants to be a boss, way too much gossip from area managers and corporate towards stores staff, corporate employees would come to the stores and flirt with store associates. Really disgusting place and environment

    Advice to Management

    management in store are excellent but the loose way too many people. Corporate never follow up on store and there is a huge gap between corp and store staff. Corporate employees will come to store and gossip, this has to end. Corporate needs to take store staff in consideration too and fulfill their needs. Every department is not supportive to store staff

    Pros

    Great People- very welcoming - awesome team oriented and helpful.
    Not quite a well oiled machine, but senior team members have a lot of incredible experience and are very accessible

    Cons

    Very little room for growth. Doesnt seem to compensate highly "valued" employees enough to pay them a little more money to stay at the company instead of losing them and replacing them.
