    Pros

    Good management, Great store, learning to keep up with fashion, learning to adapt to changes, great place to shop if you on a budget, and also meeting different people.

    Cons

    Challenges would be the customers. Learning to deal with the upset customers and still be able to smile during your shift. Also, catching on to different types of fashion as merchandise comes in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to always be positive, no matter what the situation may be.

    Pros

    , some friendly people, 20% discount sometimes 40% off entire store

    Cons

    meeting quota or no good hours and a new assist manager that doesn't know how to run the store. The max for part time is only 25 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new assistant manager that runs the store. Our store manager went to vacation and the store is a mess because she doesn't have anyone on the sales floor only cashiers

    Pros

    I like the work flexibility, co-workers, management team. Great work atmosphere and customers. The work here seems enjoyable, upbeat, and fun. The training is fairly easy, but may take a week, two or three to fully understand it. Everybody strives to be their best and collaborate as a great team. Customer service is great. There are smiles everywhere. :)

    Cons

    If you are new to the retail industry, you will experience some setbacks, but do your best, and you will excel. There may be few hours a week to work at times, but it depends on your availability, projected volume and sales. Depending on your situation, a second job may be needed. Store can get messy at times, but gets cleaned up quick, eventually. It is recommended to be open-minded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent management team. Provide more in-depth training to new employees who are new to the retail industry.
