    Pros

    Management really cares about the balance between your work and personal lives. Training is thorough and continual so customer service is always top notch. It was a pleasure to work for this company.

    Cons

    The system by which the retail stores stocks are replenished is too top down. Often, retail locations will receive goods that are not in short supply or will not receive goods that are needed.
