    Pros

    Potential to make a lot of money, and move up in the company. Higher ups are respectful, understanding and patient.

    Cons

    None really. If anything I would just say the fact that it's retail. So you will work long hours and holidays. But that's expected in a retail environment and the money you can make is worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Management is doing a great job, listening to the employees and coaching appropriately.

    Pros

    You make what you put into the job. If you are personable and able to sell yourself then you can make money. Perfect for bachelor's.

    Cons

    There is a lot of down time, as in some seasons do not yield as high of pay as other seasons but manage your money and it evens itself out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so quick to put just anyone into management. I love my management team but have ran into a few that were less then management material.
