    Management sucks, If you are not Latin you get treated like dirt.

    Look at your supervisors closely, if they are not rude and nasty one of them is trying to sleep with all the vulnerable women who can't fight back if they want to keep their job.

    Pros

    Most employees are good to each other .
    Decent benefits . Nice discount on clothes.

    Cons

    Need to get with the times in pay . Low wages causes good longterm employees to find better paying jobs.
    Management needs to leave friendship at the door . If you aren't "in" with the management you don't advance .

    Advice to Management

    Get better supervisors that don't play favorites . Listen to the employees . They don't say anything due to fear of retaliation of management.
