    Pros

    Not pressured to be very fast. Just stay at a consistent pace, and very easy work. Co-workers are awesome people.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, advancement opportunity, good benefit package. There are opportunities to learn and grow every day. Wide variety of career opportunities.

    Hold retail leadership teams more accountable to the values set forth by the company.
