Pros

Great discount on merchandise, working with and helping different kinds of people, never bored because there is always something to do!, promotes from within company, never stale and always changing.

not enough pay for the amount of responsibility, high staffing turnover rate, career advancement only goes so far, lots of shoplifters, sometimes unrealistic directives from corporate.

Loving the improvements and advancements in communication to store level but sometimes the directives and time frames are unrealistic. Managers are responsible for much more than they were even five years ago however, are not being paid more.
