    Pros

    Great learning environment, good team atmosphere, great employee discount, a very good first job for anyone who would like to experience retail at its finest

    Cons

    Hours can fluctuate if your a part time very negatively, supervisors and management can at times be difficult to work with, getting promotions are very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Management does as well as it can. There isn't much that can be done because hours are dictated by how slow or busy the company is. Managers who tend to micromanage are the most difficult to deal with. Have faith in your team and if results are not being met, then deal with associates accordingly
