      Pros

      Fun, casual, friendly customers, great lower management, flexible hours, 30% employee discount

      Cons

      Corporate is completely disconnected with how their stores actually work, they make us charge customers $8+ for a gift wrap or customization service that you as the employee don't actually see a cent of even though the customer also bought all the supplies, the pay is way too low for the effort put in, management only makes $1/hr more than CSAs, and because of that they're having a hard time getting people to work for them, putting pressure on lower employees

      Pros

      You got associste discounts djdj

      Cons

      It's all about numbers. You're trained to pester people so you end up with the highest number of sales or else you're not a good employee. The pay was pretty low too.

      Pros

      Everyone gets along great and being an artist and into crafts it was always a bonus getting a discount on merchandise.

      Cons

      If you hate listening to current radio songs, don't work in retail.

      Pros

      Great place to work while I was in school. Flexible with my class schedule. I was even able to eventually teach art classes, which was a great experience

      Cons

      Low pay, and they will keep you below certain number of hours so you don’t get benefits. Not much opportunity for career progression. I saw some people who had worked in the store for 5-10 years get passed up for management positions because they went with outside hires
