    Pros

    The best experiences for me have been with my colleagues learning, growing and development wise. You know those who truly have your support and will back you up whenever needed.

    Skillsets are not used properly especially individuals who have contributed so much and are not recognized for all their hard work and dedication. Holidays can also be a con but it is retail after Black Friday it can be challenging taking days off.

    There are those who have truly provided high level support and are not showcased as they should..
