      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very involved in intersectional activism, great products that sell themselves, they actually let us try the products instead of having us blindly push them, competitive pay depending on where you work, pretty good discount and you are almost guaranteed to find something for your skin

      Cons

      Hours are inconsistent which is expected for a part time retail job. Will not hire from within

      A Very Caring Company

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      As far as retail jobs go, they expect you to learn how to sell and are willing to coach you to be the best you can be. A very chill job to have, and a company that seems to actually care about their employees and their customers.

      Cons

      Like many jobs vacation times or hours aren't approved too often, but they do try to work around your schedule as much as they can.
