Pros

Commissions are ok. Great camaraderie among managers within a district. Upper management and corporate make their way to visit the stores so you get to meet who's in charge. Corporate big guys are very friendly and down to earth.

Cons

Selling the Spa lotion. Everyone has to sell the spa lotion or you may receive a written warning or worse. Lack of hours allotted per store leaves store managers working longer hours; small staff.

    Pros

    Great seasonal job. Good commision programmes for sales people at all times.

    Cons

    Follow up your paycheck, mistakes happened in big scales. 2008 tax forms were a mess. They had to correct and resend it all over. Not even to mention how inaccurate the checks were during 2008 holidays. They changed two of the 3 manager bonuses to be paid annually. You have to stick around 2 more months after year end and you might get your total last year`s manager bonus. People should be paid before their sweat dries off. The salaries are frozen and capped. You cant get a raise over a certain amount, and now, you cant even get a raise at all. And also forget about open door policy. District manager are trying to steal each others employees. Just all the way wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Trust in their voice. You might be suprised what you can learn from them. You are loosing your good people. So much time and money is invested in these people. Just so sad to see all these people running away.

    Pros

    Great hours, willing to work around your school schedule, treats you like family and is willing to train you to be the greatest sales man.

    Cons

    Not enough pay to live on. I'm also not a fan of the quotas we have but they aren't hard to meet as long as you are consistent.

    Advice to Management

    None, this is a great company.
