    Pros

    If you love merchandising, you will love this job. It is constant in this high volume store. The company pays well and it's benefits are good. The company has reasonable expectations. The majority of the Regional and Corporate leaders have been great...for lack of better words. They visit, report to their directs, and always have positive things to say to go along with the opportunities they see.

    Cons

    Retail management has always required more than 45 hours. If you have a good team its not too bad. The turnover in associates is another factor in this company and other retailers I've work for. They start at minimum wage. There are opportunities for some exceptional associates if they can live on small wages until they are promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like to see the company be a little more competitive with starting wages.
