    Avoid this company, there are no benefits.

    Management is beyond terrible, a mess, you are constantly asked to perform job duties that are not in your description, no break room, breaks are never on time, the DM's don't care about you one bit, never get vacations, time off requests were never granted, need I go on?

    Pros

    The customers were great. I learned a lot about my crafts and skills by being there everyday and helping customers with their projects

    Understaffed, no breaks, I was not paid properly. Upper management lied to my face and HR was incompetent. Stressful working environment. Unrealistic expectations of staff with no support.

    If your going to run a fabric store, you should know how to do so properly. Listen to your employees because they are the ones that have daily contact with your customers
