    Pros

    Cannot beat the benefits. It's the difference maker. Management treats you like a rock star if you know your craft. Very little interference if you land in a good store with good management. Alternatively, you could have micro-managers.

    Cons

    Market may be over saturated. In that case, pray for busy store. Commissions are paid a month after sales. May be transitioning to commission only structure.

    Pros

    Career Growth for individuals willing to evolve with the company.
    Benefits programs for Part time employees as well as Full time associates.

    Retail is always challenging. Dealing with the public, who often times feel the right to belittle employees, can be stressful. Especially when trying to maintain a professional demeanor.

    Advice to Management

    Have more fun. We're selling hammers and lawn mowers, not trying to establish world peace. Laugh more with your employees. Be human.
