      - Cool people - Pay above minimum wage - Good music - Good Discount

      Cons

      - Picks and chooses when to care for its employees - Overworked - Outdated scheduling - Training is unorganized and almost non-existent - Will make you attend zoom calls on days off (they're paid though) - Unrealistic daily goals - Canadian laws and regulations in US stores - Care its sellers more than any other workers - MONEY HUNGRY work style, but its principles are contradictory - Chaotic during rush hours, everyone is running around - Understaffed majority of the time - Back stock mechanical work table is literally in a hallway - Offers bonuses for IAs but makes it super hard to actually reach the goals - Order fulfillment is very difficult and unrealistic - Difficult to transfer to other locations - The company loves skinny and tall people

      Pros

      The discount is phenomenal (40%)

      Cons

      Upper management frequently snoozes on the job. Worked at multiple stores and this was the case. They cannot be relied upon to teach or adequately do their own jobs.

      Pros

      You get to meet a bunch of cool people, they do a great job of hiring people that are nice.

      Cons

      You do a lot of work and they promise you promotions or pay raises and if it does end up happening you won't see the change until half a year later, if at all.

      Pros

      -great pay -great discounts -great clothes -get to wear your own style to work -make friendships with your coworkers

      Cons

      -ZERO work-to-life balance -management sucks especially store manager. they micro manage EVERYTHING -they take it personal if you have to call out or request time out -the schedule is based off sales and comes out weekly, so if you did good one week, the next you will be overwhelmed and stacked with hours; but if u get scheduled bad days and dont meet ur goals u get bad hours the upcoming week and its very hard to get out of that loophole. -at my location you either had to park a mile away if you wanted free parking (which was so unsafe) or pay up to $18 of parking at the mall since management and full time employees had free parking which was paid for by the company -try to set the same goals and pressure part-time employees as if they are making commission like the full-time people. -make everyone work against eachother instead of reaching a goal as a team.

      Pros

      - The stores are nice environments aesthetically - Personalized shopping makes the job more involved than just folding clothes - Opportunity for career growth if you want

      Cons

      - Competition and lack of “claiming” system around sales makes for drama within the teams. - management seems to always have at least 1 mean girl. who plays favorites and popularity contests - Work life balance gets unbalanced quickly
