    Pros

    Easy job. District Managers did not micromanage. Benefits were good. Casual dress code.

    Cons

    Boring job. The store was located in a downtown area, so you had to pay for parking at meters or garage. It was very expensive! Upper management rarely visited the store. Turnover was high. Store managers required to work 44 hours even during slow periods.
