    Pros

    Love the job...currently 7 months in and seeking a promotion
    Family oriented
    Welcoming
    Work very closely with Corp, so it's easy to rub elbows for better positions/promotions.

    Cons

    Starting as a Customer Service Rep for YOW has its ups and downs
    1. Call volume in Spring is crazy!
    2. Too many females lots of gossip an drama
    3. WORKFORCE
    4. They make us compete for schedule if you are just a normal call center rep
    5. Insurance is VERY Expensive!

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone should be a Supervisor/team lead, if they are going to gossip and run around the floor spreading malicious slander about various people (especially these nice people that you are bullying).

    If you are in leadership...LEAD YOUR FLOCK
    If you are in leadership, don't have attitude if someone ask you a question "IT'S YOUR JOB," especially if your just playing around every single day.

    Pros

    Sales Associate work is especially challenging on a part-time basis. The opportunity to make most of your customers happy is rewarding. The schedule never gets tedious.

    Cons

    The schedule is never the same. Management can find many reasons to ignore solutions to even small issues that could affect results contrary to stated core values.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more closely to suggestions from the associates.

    Pros

    Friendly work environment in which the managers work with you to develop your skills and increase store sales.

    Cons

    For part-time employees, the schedule is made three weeks in advance, so for college students requesting time off is sometimes difficult.

    Advice to Management

    In order to weed out some of the lower performing employees, an employee review every few months could help develop the employee better.
