    Pros

    Every one is nice, comfortable atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sometimes hitting your goal can be a little hard with whst is currently happening in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Please come work in the store for a weekend to see how hard some goals are, how low we are in merchandise, and process shipment to see how unorganized it comes.

    discount 30% part time

    mangers pick favorites
    Horrible hiring, manger would hire people with no retail experince and students who could only work summer.
    only move up in the company if your the mangers favorite
    comission is impossible to meet.
    mangers dont appericate you and the work that you put in

    Better management and training

    Pros

    - Fun co-workers for the most part
    - Management is generally pretty understanding at my particular store
    - Learn a lot about people and retail
    - Discount is awesome

    Cons

    - VERY inconsistent hours
    - Claim room for growth but not really
    - Company changes what they want kind of often so you have to learn to adjust

  10. Not impressed

    Pros

    Big discounts on cute stuff

    Cons

    This job was the worst. They hired so many girls but barely gave us hours. I was hard working and have a lot of retail experience but there was weeks where I would get a shift a week. When I finally complained they told me thats how retail is. Um not to the extent but ok.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire a million girls and not be able to give everyone hours
