    I worked at Garden Ridge full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    From a technology perspective, GR is suprisingly advanced in many areas. Was able to learn a lot in the time I was there. Mostly good people to work with.

    Cons

    The cyclical nature of retail is a little offputting in terms of job security. Pay was reasonable but not that competitive. Somewhat of an unprofessional environment from an HR perspective. Benefits were not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    None really.
