    Pros

    flexible scheduling at the location I worked at

    Cons

    the store made the most money in it's region yet the maintenence of the building was not kept making working there in the summer a hassle because of no a/c. the store appeared dirty no matter how kept it was because it needed a paint job and carpet removal or deep cleaning. Boss fired my sister because of a on site injury.

    Pros

    Room for growth, busy most of time

    Cons

    Pay not equal to amount of work expected, communication from top often unclear or contradictory, little reward for loyalty

    Advice to Management

    Learn to compliment good work instead of always saying what's wrong. People respond better when they ate complimented first.

    Pros

    Friendly employees, convient location, easy job,

    Cons

    Crappy pay, not enough hours, clothes didn't look appealing, no fitting room, not enough room for advancement.rude customers.

    Advice to Management

    I would say that employees need more work hours to survive since working two days a week is not enough or three at the most if you are lucky, store managers should be treated like people since they are overworked and under valued. The probation period should be less and there should no particular dress code as long it is neat and appropriate since it is not a corporate office.
