    Pros

    great career & personal growth opportunities, great team work, great commission opportunities, coaching & leaders are very involved & excellent

    Cons

    typical for retail-Must Hustle! long hours especially holiday, working alone sometimes a good thing sometimes a bad thing

    Advice to Management

    find a way to double stores w/o people feeling cheated, it's safer & a way to maximize the showrooms potential
    maybe more routine pop up visits on slacking MPs

    Pros

    It was a fun but professional environment. Great team from the top to the bottom of the totem pole. Great opportunity to grow and make money

    Cons

    There can be late and/or early hours as they are open until midnight and open at 6am. Can get some rough and nasty customers but have to keep your cool

    Advice to Management

    Get a little more involved as it affects your paycheck. Help your team a little more with closing deals and up selling as again, you help their wallets as well as yours
