    Pros

    You can really move around and up fast in the company. The bonuses are great. Company luncheons for to sales. Win passes for jeans, Monday through Friday.

    Cons

    You must work for staffing agency first, hard to get on permanent, 6 months for me so far. I wish they would hire permanent after 6 months to a year with all the people leaving. the point system isn't lenient, you get points for clocking in lunch late and a 4 min window at that for start shift and lunch. The points don't roll off until a year later. Old job 1 pt rolled off with perfect attendance for a month and annually

    Pros

    Be able to make a lot of money. Gives you customer service experience. Be able to meet new people everyday. Opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    There really isn't any bad things about. I mean if you're lazy, this isn't the job for you. You gotta be able to take rejection. The better the salesmanship, the better you're going to be in this business.
