    Pros

    The employees are a great bunch of fun people who handle themselves and their goals with a professional manor. Management always seems to have your best interest at heart, right behind making the day's planned goals of course.

    Cons

    It is great for students and teenagers looking for the experience but not for someone who wants to make a career.

    Advice to Management

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Competitive benefits package for full time employees. Upwards mobility within individual stores. Product selection has improved significantly in the last year.

    Cons

    Used to be on Forbes "Best Companies To Work For" but has lost it's spirit. Economic troubles have been retaliated against with poor working conditions for store-level employees. Irreparable damage has been done to employee morale. New product direction is good, but opportunity for success is compromised by shrunken budgets and reduced head-counts.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting payroll, slashing jobs, and skimping on costs may look good on paper; but stores staffed with disgruntled and unhappy employees will do more damage to brand image than nickel and dime savings can ever counteract.
