    Pros

    It's usually pretty chilled out and most of the coworkers and customers I deal with are very nice! This will definitely be different depending on the store you work at, though

    Cons

    There's a certain amount of frustration with some of the decisions made by the higher-ups. Also, it's retail, which is never fantastic

    Listen to lower staff members when they request help as opposed to ignoring them till the issues mount up

    Pros

    -Friendly Staff
    -Staff discount (25%)
    -opportunities to go further

    Cons

    -managers would make you stay longer if jobs weren't done, pay more attention to their phones rather than focusing on the staff, would often talk to one another.
    -rota goes up weekly and never done in advance, thus less time to plan

    Pros

    Training and customer service is on point. High standards must be kept at all times therefore staff don't get bad habits.

    Cons

    Want you to do 20 jobs at once. "Investigations" when you do ANYTHING wrong. Use scare tactics too much.

    Advice to Management

    If your staff complain;LISTEN. If your staff are finding something hard;HELP. Listen and help your staff, they are the money makers.
