    Great place to work ... but dont get to comfortable

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat discounts, product knowledge training (paid) , great people I work with I loved my coworkers and managers they helped me when I started no matter how many times I asked, majority of my store tries to work as a team , this is a great place to work

    ConsPay sucks, in my store its keep your mouth shut or get 1 transfed or 2 get fired.
    no help when with S.M , our schedule isnt done untill sunday when its suppose to done no later then Friday, I always get scheduled alone with no help , little pay to do something that takes 2 people to do, store manager always in the office sleeping or on YouTube while im alone on the floor, store manager doesnt think about doing things as team work, favoritism certin rules get slide with certin employees, we need store meetings S.M said no countless of time (he says he doesn't see a point to it) our stock manager doesnt know how to do the job he just got promoted to, all black dress code is stupid if your an associate who has to do boxes on a daily basis

    Advice to Senior ManagementH.R should listen to the employees complaint and fix then not jus transfer the employees cause its still going to be the same with the next employee, plan make sure managers that are being hired have manager experience, if promotion are done with any employee h.r should be on top on replacing that emploee that got replaced, also if you have had complaintsabout a manager please do not make them a store manager, raise pay to keep your employees happy to deal with all the crap for nothing

    Great Experience

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsCompany is fun and very hands on with customer care. Offers product knowledge classes to better assist customers.

    ConsManagement doesn't pay too much attention to who they hire. The temporary stores are always in violation to many business practices. HR and upper management doesn't take employee conflicts seriously.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake more of an effort to do background checks on new hires

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No type of understanding but was very fun while it lasted.

    Costume Mascot (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsVery friendly staff for the most part, loved the assistant manager to bits!

    ConsManger of the store made a big deal over nothing and expected people to do his dirty work, people in this city really don't care.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWell none currently due to the fact the old manager is gone but for the future please be more understanding to people's person situations. Things happen, we get caught in traffic, we get sick, life has a way of throwing a curve ball sometimes. We enjoy and need our jobs and if we give you the heads up about something PLEASE do not throw it in our faces and fire us.

    The company stands for something great, just not the people who work for them.

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsOn the job paid training every month that are very informative. Lots of free products (although they are usually damaged or about to expire).

    ConsThere is a lot of malice in the company. Very easy to get fired. Some of the managers and heads are very untrained and unprofessional. Many errors kn paycheck.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more appreciation to Sales Associates. Without us there would be a lot less business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
