    Former Employee - Retail Sales Representative in Charlottesville, VA
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good Pay
    Great Benefits
    Lots of Knowledge
    Professional Feel

    Cons

    Constantly changing commission structure which causes you to never know what you are going to make
    Inside consultants, traveling managers, and district managers seem to have lost touch of what it is like to work in the store with customers
    Management does not know how to sell or train others
    Always attempt to motivate employees negatively, instead of positively or reward based

    Advice to Management

    Hire those in management and district management who understand the store, know how to sell, but more importantly can effectively pass that knowledge onto others. Also, make them realize that negative reinforcement only helps an employee work as hard to keep their job not over and above, this is where positive reinforcement makes the difference.
