    Pros

    Pay was good. You get benefits. Really chill job

    Cons

    Major problem with the corporate. Managers and leads were taking advantage of their position. Corporate won't do anything about some issues with the store, how things run, and with how the managers act. As long as business is running. They don't care about their employees.

    Cons

    The schedule
    Lack of Management

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they have concerns. Treat them with respect. The employees work for the company not for you directly.

    Pros

    Nice People, clean, safe working environment, easy to learn processes and run shops.

    Cons

    Boring.
    BIG disconnect between management (arrogant-better than hourly type of guy) & associates-Everyone IS so unhappy.
    Management rarely seen in shops and expected you to stay moving/busy all day. But with few customers, not much stock to price or put away, I just spent a lot of time walking around the shop just fluffing souvenir t-shirts, making sure the shelves looked good & dusting the same product 6x a day.
    Odd Shifts:4:30am-12:30 & 12:30-9:30pm.
    You get normal breaks, but its hard to find anyone to cover your shop so you can go to the restroom outside of your breaks.
    Terrible long walk from employee parking to airport.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved in shop operations, and breaks. There are too many people always on the clock, better time management and movement of staff throughout the day would allow you to cut labor costs and break up the boring monotony that eventually made me HATE coming to work there.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Management team was supportive.
    Very good bonus potential. Paid time off is comparable to other companies. Decent 401k matching.
    Uniforms provided as well. Good employees discounts might be best benefit.

    Cons

    Located in corporate office city. Lots of interference and pressure. Working in airport has challenges, the weather can play havoc with your schedule and the hours that you work.
