    Pros

    as retail goes this job is more colorful and fun than others. lots of organizing and customer interaction. great coworkers. good opportunities to be creative and craft

    Cons

    management has gone through lots of changes. with some managers in particular i felt looked down upon. had an altercation twice with the head manager, during one of which she made me cry in front of her. it is hard to gain their trust even with dedicated hard work.
