    Pros

    Athleta as a whole is an incredibly supportive company, and I absolutely approve of their dedication to sustainability and empowerment. The Nashville store really prides itself on maintaining high standards and creating a healthy work environment.

    Like many retail jobs, there can be some very aggressive customers, but there is nothing you can really do other than deal with them.

    All the women are friendly, inclusive and empowering. The best team I have ever worked with. Location is really charming. Employee discounts are excellent.
