    I worked at Metropark full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great clothes, fun environment and good music to work to. Carried my favorite brands and styles. So I always looked great when I went to work. If I was going out after, I was dressed to impress!

    Cons

    Minimal movement to grow with company. Hiring process took 2 months. Must stay current with fashion trends. Company went bankrupt and I was never paid 3 weeks of vacation time owed.

    Advice to Management

    Save your core stores that continues to bring in revenue. Get a new chief financial officer who doesn't waste company money. Pay your vendors to get restock of favorite brands.

    Pros

    The atmosphere was fun and on trend. They always had new music and music videos playing and let us crank it up. The fixtures were nice and up to date.

    Cons

    The business was failing, although they didn't even hint towards that in the many interviews I had. New merchandise stopped coming in, which was no surprise when I found out they were filing bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    I learned a lesson to ask about the stability and future growth of the company before accepting the offer. Not every company would give much information in an interview, but I would like to atleast know about my future opportunities.
