    Pros

    -Holiday gift card -Raise every year -Potential networking -Some stores are close knit -Learning about fashion -Potential to get promoted

    Cons

    -Work is mentally exhausting -Most managers have little to no people skills, they don't care about employees -Since a lot of promotions are from within, you have several people training someone in different styles and telling them two different things, gets frustrating -Corporate implements rules that don't make sense, they're very out of touch with what actually happens in the stores -There can be a lot of drama -Often times, people are trained for positions for months or even years and then never actually get said position or promotion -Getting talked down to from managers and corporate -Customers can be very disrespectful and degrading -Uniform shoes are required and always uncomfortable and painful -High turn over so always having to train new people almost weekly
