    Make sure to pay attention to high performers and see how they can be utilized better they will be the key to your success.

    Pros

    The leadership all the way from the Director of Stores is outstanding. I have never worked for a company so invested in personal growth. The district managers are all positive and encouraging. I would say this is the best retail envoronment to be in. I have been here four years and after lots of turn over and changes the leadership teams have never been better. The company is always innovating and growing in some aspect! Work life balance is preached and achieved by this company.

    Cons

    It’s retail. Be prepared for retail shenanigans.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people. We never forget it.

    Great opportunity to learn about the industry of sales as a young person.

    Cons

    Commission would be nice addition for employees in retail.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding commission benefits to perks.
