    I worked at Joyce Leslie part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The managers work around your schedule if you have another job or school.
    I made lasting friendships with coworkers and we really bonded.
    30% discount for employees family and friends

    Cons

    Everything in the store is out dated, they still use old IBM registers from the 80's, paperwork like the daily sales log are recorded on paper. They still have old carpet and sensors that poke a hole in the clothes.
    Getting paid minimum wage even though you worked there for 2 years and got promoted.
    Management curses and behaves unprofessionally towards customers (sometimes).
