        I have been working at Sunglass Hut part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Store managers are awesome! Work with you on scheduling. Low-pressure sales environment. Show off your personality. Focused more on engaging with customers, rather than just selling to them. Lots of fun training materials.

        Cons

        VERY LOW COMMISSION and it’s only paid out if your store makes sales goals. Pay is okay, but you’re expected to do more than other typical retail jobs by giving customers a grand “experience” Typically working alone.

        Advice to Management

        Give employees an incentive to sell by raising commission and paying it out whether or not goals are made!
