    Pros

    Easy money. You have to show up, do your job, and then go home. Sometimes pulling extra hours if needed, but it's not required. Very flexible schedule and the discount is nice.

    Cons

    The people make the job. If you don't have a good working team, it can be stressful. The company's policies and rules, especially upper management who's never worked retail can be a bit stupid, but take it with a grain of salt.

    Pros

    Easy. Come to work on time, do your job, and go home. Room for growth if you go above and beyond. Hours aren't crazy considering it's retail.

    Cons

    Lots of organization and planning if you're hired in EXECUTION. I loved it, but if you don't like that it's not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees on the ground floor more. We know what your client wants.
