    Pros

    great team environment supportive management organized corporation structured work environment (dependent on manager) Easy interview Fair pay

    Cons

    It all depends on the people. I think the company overall has things together. The biggest downside was the restructuring that took place a few years ago which eliminated the merchandising team and therefore forcing my hand to move on as the only other option given was nights and weekends in customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the positivity up and the workplace can be an enjoyable environment. HR should also look into its harassment policies and procedures as they are either not clear enough or not followed strictly enough

    Decent discounts, great benefits, quick to create a new position depending on demand.
