    What a Joke

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Nashville, TN

    Pros- You are not micro-managed since the managers are rarely around.

    Cons- The pay is an insult for what you are required to do.
    - You assume the role of manager at all times basically, but you are not paid as one.
    - Oh, real managers? Yea, they don't care about the employees or customers needs so why even have them?
    - Many times you will be scheduled to leave at one time, and no one will let you know until 30 minutes after your shift was to end that your replacement called out. While it can be nice to get over time pay, what about your life outside of work?
    - The turn over rate is insane, and many new employees are stupid and un-experienced.
    - Management dosen't know what's going on ever.
    - The raises are pathetic.
    - The overall company morale is pathetic.
    - Training? What training?
    - Favoritism... yes... there is a lot of that.
    - Apparently sexual harassment is okay by this company.
    - When an employee dose a good job no one seems to care.
    - When an employee dose a bad job no one seems to care.
    - Management can be very critical of employees despite never giving them the tools, advice, or guidance to succeed at their job.
    - There is no chance for growth.

    Advice to Senior Management- Learn how to do your job.
    - Pay more if you want each of your employees to run your stores with no supervision.
    - Actually care about who you hire.
    - If you're a manager... act like it.
    - Let your employees know when they are doing a good or bad job.
    - Quit the favoritism.
    - Learn how to actually run a company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Nashville, TN

    Prosflexible schedule
    friendly people
    pretty environment
    discount in shops
    good starting pay for retail

    Consmanagers have no interest in solving issues
    new associates are given more hours than associates who have been with the company fora long time
    stuck in shop alone for hours never seeing or being able to reach a supervisor
    can be a great associate or not so great and treated the same
    new people are put in shops with little to no training and associates are expected to make them fully trained
    registers are ancient, paperwork excessive
    no raises or reviews
    have to walk a lot and stand with limited breaks

    Advice to Senior Managementupdate your systems
    reward your good associates
    look into why there is such high turnover, the hiring in general
    think about a 401k

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Think Twice

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery lenient on clothing worn to work
    Nice discount on products.

    ConsManagement needs to be more onsite
    Low moral among current employees
    Have to call offsite to get answers to everyday questions especially tech questions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay close attention to operations manager on site and then turnover will be lessened.
    Reward those who work hard and use their time wisely, but aren't considered "cool".

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was a demanding and very time/life consuming job.

    Area Manager (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsLots of autonomy, had the opportunity of working with only monthly visits from the boss. Skill level grew in some areas. Good Boss.

    ConsTechnologically antiquated. They don't use computers, only fax machines. Paper work needlessly intense. They don't listen to employees from ways to improve business. Employees are not valued or compensated fairly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet computers. Value your employees. It is easier and cheaper to keep employees than constantly train new ones.
