    Pros

    Meet new friends in customers and employees. Learn new things about products thru customer experience and somethings thru product vendors.

    Cons

    Managers run the store on a personal level not professional. They treat their employees poorly and lie to them daily. HR's are a joke, if you call them they try to convince you your taking everything the wrong way then they lie and its retaliation time! Good place to work if your lazy and don't care about anything. Don't apply!!!

    Advice to Management

    You can't be a leader if you have no followers. Your not right about everything and hear the voice of the employee. Your not better than your staff so don't act like it. You are NOTHING without your associates! Treat them poorly and have poor work results. Happy associates= happy customers. The only happy person in the stores are the store mgr, shame. Nothing last forever
