    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Family-like atmosphere for a start-up business that grew fast with many entry level and senior level opportunities.

    Cons

    Too many entry level and senior level opportunities were the perfect ingredients for a disaster. Many errors were made, which were not caught before it was too late.

    Advice to Management

    Next time, pace yourself & only bite off what you can chew.
    In a lousy economy, save some cash, will ya!

    Pros

    The environment and staff makes you want to get up and go to work. Filled with high energy and strong vibrant staff.

    Cons

    In this economic state the hours can be cut short depending on how current sales are fitting into where we should be. Keeping that in mind the pay can start to seem very little.

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere. Half of the time, it is an enjoyable place to work. On top of that, there is an opportunity for commision. Hours are flexible.

    Cons

    Other half of the time, they will drive you to work hard. trying to get commission is almost impossible. People tend to be replaced pretty quickly.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is pretty good. They are hard workers.

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth, Great atmosphere, ability to meet new people

    Cons

    Too many people working & competing for "incentives"

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the employees as opposed to the customer. Too much customer service with weak product selection is not a good combination. When the product is not there. Without products customers can only get so much. Too much customer is a turnoff & can prevent ultimate sales!!!

    Pros

    The pay is decent and you don't do too much work, unless it's a Friday or Saturday and the Mall of America is packed. You stand in the store and wait for customers to walk in so you can convince them to buy what they don't need and meet your sales quota.

    Cons

    The management does a poor job of motivating their workers and give you a slap on the hand if you don't meet your sales quota for the month as well as a write-up and threat to cut you if it happens again.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that you have many people wanting to work at this retail store and do not fear being short on employees, since the discount for premium denim jeans and designer shirts is significant, but you should try to KEEP the workers that you have by motivating them more than you demean them when sales quotas are not met. This will lead to employees wanting to stay, and not quit (as I did), which leads to more incentive for employees to work, ultimately leading to higher customer satisfaction.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    It was a very diversity place to work. It was a good place to network and work with people from all walks of life. and you never know who might walk in that door to meet.

    Cons

    It wasn't a Commission base company. So you can work really hard at sales and get nothing in return for it but your standard hourly base.
