    Pros

    It was a pretty easy job and the hours weren't bad. We closed by 8:30 every night so you never had to be there that late.

    Cons

    The overall environment was kinda lame. There wasn't a lot of encouragement and incentive was given only by threat of being written up.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up! Like the whole trickle down anger thing really doesn't work. If you get yelled at by corporate, try and get your employees to improve using positive reinforcement. Because if you just in turn go yell at them, eventually they're going to get frustrated and just quit.

    You get a raise every year which is pretty cool you can move to different departments which is always nice

    Management has there favorites they accept to much when your already working your hardest and there sales suck

    Give people a break on there sales don't make them feel like crap you can't make people buy something they don't want
