    I worked at Crossroads Trading full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cool clothing. Coworkers are cool.

    Cons

    Lots of turn over. Over worked. Pay is low. Micro management. District managers are outdated. As corporate as it gets. No room to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing top 40. Even Nordstrom plays better music.

    Pros

    Great company who always takes care of its employees. I have a great working relationship with my superiors who have always encouraged my growth and supported me along my way.

    Customer service is always a challenge. Also managing both the buying and selling aspects of the business is a juggling act in itself.
