    Pros

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

    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
