I worked at LAMPS PLUS part-time

Pros

Easy job. Sell to customers and make your goals and make your goals. If you don't have ambition to move up then starting in sales is a great place for you.

Cons

They're very bad about promoting people. They expect everyone to clean, do stock work, assemble merchandise, etc. Even though it cuts into your sales and you're on commission. If you're a stronger sales person they let you bet by without doing a lot. They promote stealing from each other by pushing you to make goals and when people steal they look the other way as long as the person doing it is on their top performer.

Advice to Management

Be more fair. Promote from within. Recognize tenure. Make sure your managers stand up for what's right and not what's easiest.
