    Pros

    As a manager you actually have a lot a freedom to be creative to come up with ways to be successful. You get a lot of training and you get to work with your teams to successful. There are a lot of good benefits and rewards working there.

    Cons

    The company puts more value in hiring young college grads with no experience over seasoned retail veterans. I saw the company go from being focused on brands to focus on discounts. Stores became messy.

    Advice to Management

    Realize your most important asset is your people and stores that are understaffed do not look good or run well.
