    Pros

    If I were to work at this job I would have time to know more about the store. I love the items they sell.

    Cons

    I would have to stay concerned about my surroundings and what people might do if I'm not looking

    Advice to Management

    My advice is that the items that are selected for a trend should be pointed out more . As for the items they have to be set to a point were the customer is able to reach it
