    Pros

    Fun product lines in a fast paced environment. Employee discount was great at the holidays. Never a boring day

    Cons

    Little to now training on systems or on overall department and inter-department processes. Like all retail outfit - stressful can get high when business is bad. Little room for personal growth as they didn't promote from within during my time there.
