    I have been working at Victoria's Secret part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good hours, great pay, fun work environment, nice crew of girls on my team

    Cons

    Many late workers and NC/NS! Over hiring with not enough scheduled hours, good for calling in, bad for a consistent scheduling

    Advice to Management

    Give reliable employees more hours, cut off NC/NS employees and penalize lates if longer than 15 minutes to an hour?
