    I have been working at Carson's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many.... never bounced a paycheck I guess

    Cons

    This joint is a victim of too many life long employees thinking that retail 'has always been like this'. Anyone above a front line associate will be a cancer to your organization. Anyone from HDQ should be avoided.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a different profession, the retail game passed you by long ago
