    It's retail. There are no pros.

    Cons

    Employee discount is a joke. You can only use it when they decide to let you.

    Wages suck.

    Hard working employees deserve more than just pennies as a raise.

    Pros

    In enjoyed the staff, we had a lot of great merchandise to sell to our consumers. Good price points, and a lot of great mark downs.

    Cons

    Corporate changed floor plans weekly. Customers came in confused on where merchandise was located. Customers was discouraged on looking for there items. Floor moves was ridiculous, and generally lot any pay roll available to make the floor moves, and pulling from cashiers, and dressing room suffered. Planning for these moves hurt customer service.

    Advice to Management

    I was a part of management team. But, store manager and corporate was all about the payroll numbers, and made everyone jobs a work of 1 person for a job should have taken at least 6.
