    Pros

    Managers make your own schedule, training was up to date. Learning tools were provided for all Sales Associates. Work atmosphere was fun! Looked forward to going in to work.

    Cons

    It was good while it lasted. Managers went from salary to hourly. Sales Associates earned $1 above minimum wage. However, ever since we lost big cell phone companies commission sucked! My store closed last month. :( big run around no communication or heads up.
