        I worked at rue21 part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Great for gaining experience in Retail

        Cons

        Don't expect much from Corporate, they are unlikely to help you in most situations Also, My employment status stopped for some reason while I was still working there so my manager had to physically write out my hours because corporate wasn't helping at all!

        Advice to Management

        If an Employee didn't receive pay, try to be more urgent on fixing the issue. Also, give the managers more control over employee problem solving.
