Pros

Best place to learn about retail with exposure to a variety of products and vendors. The work gets "too hands-on" sometimes, but it really is what it takes to learn so next time you will know how to manage through the process/big picture.

Cons

Pay can be a little bit more competitive considering the level of stress (especially during holidays) and the frequent over-8-hour days, monthly performance-based bonus would be really nice.

Advice to Management

Enhance training program for new employees, both associate and management (beyond technical training and sales standard, budget hours for formal shadowing/training-on-floor) so they can be more productive when they actually start.
