      Pros

      Forty percent discount on items.

      Cons

      Mean girls on steroids, fraternity like hiring staff, high expectations with very low pay (you can make more money working as a cashier at the Dollar store), nonexistent six month peer review so basically non existent raise conversations will take place. Their expectations are too high as they expect a seasoned athlete with expert product knowledge, but they pay you minimum wage. They start you out part time to probably not be forced to give you medical and other benefits. This is the lowest pay I ever received in my life. I was looking for a fun part time job, but unrealistic expectations and contradictory and unorganized management is laughable at best. Most people who work there live with their parents, significant other who makes more money to support them, or has tons of roommates. Basically you can not live off these wages. I’m sure you would be given more money either on unemployment benefits or on welfare.

      As far as retail goes, you can't beat it....but it's still retail.

      Pros

      Great company, incredible benefits, flexible schedule, work with fun people, lots of freedom to make decisions on your own and contribute ideas

      Cons

      Very often understaffed, which can be quite stressful for the employees AND the customers. Communication throughout the company could be better. Low pay, even for retail (but benefits make up for it to an extent)

      Mixed review

      Pros

      Perks- trips, medical insurance, food provided. Relationships with vendors. Great coworkers. Community support that we can stand behind. Everything would be rated much higher if most of the these things still existed with good pay.

      Cons

      Get "promoted" but you have to prove yourself in a position before you get paid more. Not a training period, literally just you don't get paid for your promotion until they can find the funds. Always changes going on that you have to adapt to. Low, low pay. Especially in SF.
