      Pros

      So freeing, can really be yourself and express yourself. No real rules of hair, tattoos, dress code is “wear clothes”, coworkers are great, management is nice.

      Cons

      “Wear clothes” unless it has profanity on it, which is like half of what they sell. Not many chances to move up, management doesn’t listen to suggestions or let people do what the have years of experience in. Easy to be certified love and piercing expert even if you don’t know a lot about either section. Also employees who are not doing their job/breaking rules/raising their voice at customers and management aren’t written up or punished in anyways.

      Toxic Management

      Pros

      Enjoyed work, loved job itself, developed unique knowledge about company products

      Cons

      Toxic management that caused a severely unpleasant work situation, became unbearable to come to work, Also, on evaluations if you rate yourself a 4 (the highest) they automatically reject and give it back to you. You are not allowed to think that you are doing very well at your job. At one evaluation I had a few 2's and was told that was good. The HR person told me , "we live in a land of two's". I don't want to be where a 2 is the expectation.
