    Pros

    Fun environment, thorough training, promoted teamwork, gave you space to be creative

    Cons

    I worked at Charming Charlie for six months and we had four different general managers throughout this time. While that is out of the hands of the district manager (all the store managers left to pursue better opportunities), it was handled very poorly. I and the other two sales leads were given all the responsibilities of a general manager with none of the pay. We were not motivated or supported to take on extra responsibilities and the store really fell apart and sales dipped significantly. Our district manager was just awful and completely unsupportive. We were constantly chastised by her for not fulfilling the role of general manager even though we did not receive any training, support, or pay. But I was just stuck there at a bad time where we were constantly without a general manager and I'm sure it has improved since then.

    The customers were also consistently awful and entitled compared to the other retail jobs I worked.
