    Pros

    Great benefits, decent compensation, good marketing team

    long hours, expected to work numerous days in a row-sometimes more than 20 days in a row, not great communication between HQ and the retail stores

    Allow the store managers to do just that...manage. Enough hand holding. Either trust in your teams or don't. Enough micro-managing
