Advice to Management
Keep doing what your doing (a good job). Promote within from the employees working at the store looking for higher management.

Small Stock Room
Not enough Hours

Great working environment where the music was upbeat, coworkers and customers were fun and entertaining, and best of all where the scenery was filled with great style and very cute shoes. Since the stores are usually small square footage-wise and the product is kept in boxes out of customers reach, closing shifts end about 30 minutes after the shopping center closes -- something you won't find working in apparel.
Be careful or you may spend your whole paycheck in the store.

Amazing and friendly place to work
Very by the book

Insofar as working here, the company really takes care of their employees. Having been working here the past year, there has been a lot of growth from within the company. As for promotions, if one's numbers show in black and white, there is no reason (aside from availability of position) for them not to be promoted within the company.
Amazing discounts help as well!
Hours can be straining at times, especially for students who work here to support themselves.

Have a suggestion forum for employees to place their input. As great as the company is, there is always room for improvement.

Commission is a percentage of your income, therefore can be a competitive work environment.
