    Pros

    Great discount! Especially when the deeply discounted stuff arrives in the back. I got camis for less than $2.
    The people that I worked with (on the floor) were great! We had a lot of fun and they helped make the shifts go faster.

    Cons

    Terrible management. My manager was incredibly unprofessional, playing favorites (e.g. shift schedules) and discussing inappropriate topics at work (e.g. her dating life).

    Advice to Management

    Please train your management team better, so they have the skills to lead the team better.

    The culture is casual. The people are great, especially those that decided to stick around.

    Use employee input. You hired whom you hired for a reason, trust their intuition and skills.
