    Pros

    The amount of uniform freedom. Just need to wear the t-shirt and make sure your heels aren't too high.
    As flagship store, it could get very busy

    Although most were lovely, there was an extremely rude and brash manager.
    Pay was average, although this was flagship store
    High staff rotation

    Build and uplift employees
    Stop shouting at staff as if they're your children
    Take action on complaints about managers
    Get rid of the Twilight team, make people rotate hourly to do standards. Train twilight team in sales
