    Pros

    Discount. Potential to be a good job but...

    Cons

    Pay is ridiculous for the level of work they expect. The manager and one of the asst managers have major attitude problems and talk to staff like absolute second class citizens. I understand and agree that the store need to be nearly spotless and restocked but the women are obsessed. And you better not have five seconds of downtime or you will be scolded.

    Advice to Management

    Kindness goes a long way. I realize your management wants their huge bonuses but they really make everyone miserable.

    Pros

    Great customer base, easy to sell. well known brand in the US. Great customer service

    Cons

    slightly over price, not all patterns are flattering. lots of pressure to sell 4 units per customer.

    Upper management has a very high turnover, promote people base on politics not on qualifications. The worst HR department not trust worthy.

    I understand customer service is priority but perhaps some restrictions should be in place so customers do not take advantage of the return or exchange policy
