    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

    Great discount and gratis items, good benefits

    Cons

    Lots of hours are expected to get floorsets completed and with new management complements the workload of titles eliminated is passed along to others without any compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that your people are more important than anything else. When the culture of a store is good, the results follow.

    Space was really limited in the store, they have since expanded the store so I don't think there are any cons regarding this store.
