    Pros

    Commission and bonuses available.
    Monthly gratis
    Decent pay

    Cons

    Most positions are part time
    May not always get favorable hours

    Advice to Management

    Management should consider more regular set schedules and promoting within the company more often. Also larger yearly raises. 20 cents doesn't make a difference really!

    Pros

    Limited Brands is a great company to work for and is very good to the employees. You get great discounts on merchandise and the benefits are good. They provide a lot of training on the product so you feel prepared to sell and talk to customers.

    Cons

    Only bad things were central to my particular store. There was a lack of communication with a new store manager that was frustrating.
