    Pros

    Coworkers at the location I worked at were great.
    Benefits are above average, especially for a retail position.

    Cons

    Pay is pretty below average, even for expert roles and getting raises is very difficult.
    Management isn't always transparent with their thoughts on how things are going and do anything to keep you in stores instead of helping you get to corporate levels.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and honest with your employees instead of lying to them in order to keep them at a store level.
