    Pros

    Employee discount. Training of the brands they carry. Clean environment.

    Cons

    If you like to brown nose or tattle tail you will advance in this store. Inflated egos run rampant here. Associates in all departments have to deal with this on a daily basis. Which means true camaraderie amongst the associates is rare. They backstab and fight for sales due to the draw against commission. Management wouldn't know how to recognize a good employee if they saw one.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Get over yourself. You wouldn't make it in the real world.

    Pros

    Money can be good if you sell.

    Cons

    If you don't sell you're screwed. Management has no idea what's going on in the real world.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people instead of numbers.
