    Pros

    You can get in easily

    Cons

    Only want part time employees under 30 hours so they wont have to pay benefits such as medical insurance and dental? Forget it only Full timers get that and the only ones left are the ones closer to retiring. Overall a very greedy company that cares nothing about their overworked employees, if your a kid looking for par time employment and DO NOT have to pay rent this is for you , the rest will only be scraping by. Always looking for more ways to skim on employees, raises, and benefits. Slave work and wages. Most employees are on welfare to get by...

    Advice to Management

    Jump ship while you can!

    Pros

    Good co workers, decent pay for retail. You do not start at minimum wage

    Cons

    Poor management - uneducated and/or in experienced Deserving employees who want a promotion are put on the back burner for people that are "buddy buddy" with upper management. Low pay vs other industries of similar responsibly

    Advice to Management

    Pick employees that deserve to be promoted not just friends you can "hook up"

    Pros

    Worked very closely with the CEO/Founder, and gained a lot of insight into qualitative analytics and consumer feedback. Would recommend this position.

    Cons

    The position was off-site, so it was a little difficult to communicate with other employees. However there were Skype meetings which allowed for easier communication.
