    Pros

    The people are genuine and honest. The company pays fairly well for retail. The hours are flexible and understanding. There isn't a competition between you and your coworkers. They support you getting your education.

    Cons

    The standard daily operating systems get messy. The nights can be hectic due to inventory. Holidays are always exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Lead your people in ways they wouldn't expect to gain training from. No one wants to be forced to learn. Keep it inclusive and interactive to the best of your ability.
