Pros

- Flexible Work Schedule
- Great Staff

- Great philosophy
- Great work environment
- Feedback from employees is appreciated by management and acted upon

Cons

- Communication from Top to Bottom is sometimes lacking (however management knows this and is taking steps to resolve it)

Advice to Management

- Keep working with employees to come up with solutions for issues in the stores and the company.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, that make it worth coming in to work. Great salary compared to similar retailers. Every day is different.

    Cons

    Rude and loud customers who get what hey want for being rude and loud. working retail hours, weekends and evenings. Only know your work schedule, one week in advance. Management almost recognizes when you do a good job but is very quick to give you negative feedback when they feel you're not. Almost no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize hen your employees are trying hard and doing a good job and tell them!!!
