    Pros

    -Great Management
    -Amazing discounts
    -Entire staff is willing to help you and so flexible

    Cons

    -Store sets are hectic, but where are they not?
    -Not many cons! But I worked there shortly

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The assistant management (when I was working there) was irreplacable and so friendly. Couldn't imagine better management for a part-time retail store job

    I worked at Coldwater Creek part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Manager (Fairview, TX), and excellent opportunity to learn retail. Great customers too!

    Cons

    Too much pressure from Corporate to get credit card apps and PSP appointments which turns the customer's off. I understand the necessity to drive customers into the store though.

    Advice to Management

    A huge "thank you" to Louise for teaching me to care about the product, hard work, and dedication, and giving me the opportunity to work for her and Coldwater Creek. I truly miss her and this store.
