    Pros

    Great place to grow and have as a career.

    Cons

    Sales persons now make more than the managers because of commission. So if the store does not make goal the managers make nothing but the sales associates still make thousands a month. Huge flaw in the system.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your store is close to making bonuses before you sign up

    Pros

    The company truly takes care of their associates. Its nice to work for a company that acknowledges that they need you as much as you need them. Flexible hours, great incentive, positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sometimes can get a bit overwhelming but all jobs do. Also, there is sometimes favoritism which can cause associates acting superior towards one another.

    Keep favoritism to a minimum but reward based on performance.
