    I worked at Vanity Shop Of Grand Forks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some people are really nice.

    Cons

    If you're working part-time. You'll get 1-2 shifts a week (maybe) and they'll only be 5 hours long. At $7.25 an hour, its tough.

    I have been working at Vanity Shop Of Grand Forks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a hidden gem of a company in the crowded world of fashion. The atmosphere is friendly and professional. Management and employees are committed to customer and product innovation and newness. It is predominately female run, and a non political atmosphere. There is lots of room for growth for experienced and inexperienced people interested in getting into retail or the supply chain side of it.

    Cons

    Fargo ND (head office) is a lovely town, and makes for a stress free commute. But, winters are cold. Summers on the other hand are some of the nicest I've ever seen. Breezy, not humid, lovely weather in the summer and fall.

    I worked at Vanity Shop Of Grand Forks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers, 40% discount, Mall environment, cute clothes

    Cons

    Work/life balance. The Company does not care about the store managers. I was lied to numerous times. It seems like the home office has no idea about anything that happens ever. The Management will cover for each other and run employees away if you do not like how you are treated. They pay much less than their competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the needs of your employees. Value them before you lose them.
