Pros

You are able to make a pretty decent paycheck when your sales are high.

Cons

EXTREME favoritism! My manager at the time was constantly letting certain associates behavior slide even when these behaviors were brought up to both management and HR. Store rules/policies also weren't enforced for these select employees. This creates an enviornment where management isn't respected and associates can "take an inch and run a mile" so to speak.

Most co-workers were very gossipy and there was no real sense of team work. Frankly, I was not getting paid enough to feel like I was going back to High School everyday. I got to the point where I actually hated going to work everyday because of the attitudes of other associates.

Management also seemed to over look good employee performance.

Advice to Management

Store policies need to be enforced for ALL employees. Something needs to be done to enforce positive interaction between co-workers.
