    Pros

    Culture is amazing. During the interview process I knew I wanted to work here because every executive I interviewed with was so laid back and transparent. I started as a Sales Manager and I was promoted to Store Manager within a year. You work with commissioned sales and to them it’s their own business. It’s the managers job to lead, motivate,and drive results.

    Cons

    More product knowledge training

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing!

    Pros

    Great coworkers, technically have benefits, you get your birthday off.

    Cons

    Petty management that will cut hours to make a bonus. Management treats sales staff as if they are incompetent. No room to grow. Going to work is mentally exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and actually listen to your employees
