    +Great reputation for customer service
    +HR Staff

    Cons

    There seems to be a disconnect in the quality of training for the department manager level. It is evident by how and what they speak to the sales staff. i.e. you don't correct an employee from across the floor in front on customers and employees.

     It can be VERY competitive. It can be a “clicky” and “katty” environment and In the slow times sales people fight for their commission and at times fight (not physically) each other. Yes it can be ‘dog eat dog’, though very well dressed dog.


  2. "Besides making great friends, it is a terrible place to work with horrible business ethics."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - I made a lot of good friends

    Cons

    - they never wanted to hire more people, just work their employees overtime and extra hours, they also wait forever to hire new management for departments when it is needed, leaving the sales associates with more work to do than what they get paid for

    Advice to Management

    hire more people- although i dont know anyone who has worked there and would want to return. so good luck!
