    Pros

    Love the company’s philanthropic efforts & if you have a good team, it’s a fun and dynamic place to work. There are opportunities for growth and generally I’ve found a lot of support to do so.

    Cons

    Your manager and team can make or break your experience; typical customer service woes. Differing opinions between front store priorities and cosmetic priorities can get frustrating, but again, this depends on the staff.
