    Pros

    Great first job. There's also room for growth and part-time employees are eligible for benefits which is good.

    Pros

    great salary bonuses and training classes in management. Hard work and a good attitude pays off.

    Don't ever forget retail is a people business never become to overwhelmed by impossible goals where you forget to take the time to know your employees and customers!
