      Pros

      The manager and employees of the store I worked with. The values of the company were awesome. It seemed as though the corporate actually saw the employees as human beings. Good benefits.

      Cons

      Some things with COVID were not stated clearly. Middle management was.... middle management. We were changing store managers and the previous store manager was becoming the Assistant Area Manager but she was still in the store and micromanaged a bit.

      Pros

      Coworkers, Clothing, Fashion Education. The clothing that comes in is amazing, and being around coworkers that love clothes makes the job fun. 80% of my wardrobe is from Buffalo.

      Cons

      Pay, Amount of Work, Company Culture. Buffalo Exchange is not a Meritocracy!

      Great for learning fashion

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A lot of fun, you learn lots and get a great pick at the clothes as well as learn lots about fashion and how to deal with unhappy customers

      Cons

      The only downside is the level of dedication and expertise and outside work you're expected to learn and do without being compensated for the expertise and still deal with being a bottom tier minimum wage employee. Monthly meetings, training racks, trend boards, styling, customer service, and merchandising all just to be treated like a cashier.
