    I worked at Bon-Ton Stores full-time

    Pros

    Exciting, fast paced retail environment. 25% discount on top of great sales is generous. Good benefit package for full timers. Nice retail sales job for college students and retirees.

    Cons

    Retail isn't for everyone - you're always on your feet. Special sales can have you starting at 6am and working as late as midnight. Raises are based on merit reviews and it's almost impossible to get the maximum .25/hr. raise. Lots of pressure to meet sales/credit goals. Very few opportunities for advancement. There's a very high employee turnover rate - employees get burned out from the pressure or discouraged when they realize they're at a dead end job.

    Advice to Management

    none for store managers because they too are under a lot of pressure from their higher-ups to meet their goals and quotas. Advice to corporate - get out and try working a month in a store to experience the pressure, under staffing and low wages.
