    Pros

    Target pay’s very well, especially if you do a good job. You can earn a 10% bonus every position move.

    Cons

    There is a lot of physical work for very long hours. As an executive it’s sometimes expected that you
    Don’t take a lunch or breaks.

    Nope

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits were good. The team atmosphere made it easy to come to work. It was also nice knowing I could make an impact on a daily basis.

    Work life balance. It's retail and the hours are very inconsistent. Also the direction of the company doesn't look too good. The messages from corporate are inconsistent and they no longer know what they want to stand for.
