      Great Employees, Terrible Company

      Pros

      Good employees, fun work environment,and good discounts on clothing. Pay was decent for management. Flexible schedule.

      Cons

      Severe lack of communication between management and staff. I wouldn't trust anyone from upper management , they are sneaky and manipulative. This company doesn't promote well within, and "everyone" is replaceable to them. High turnover rates. Unrealistic sales goals ( Fragrance). Plus, if your already going to school or pregnant , then your not considered an "asset" employee because you have prior obligations...

      Low pay and barely any hours if you’re just an associate. Drama can pop up depending on which location you work at. It get repetitive and boring after a while. Rude customers are pretty common too so prepare for that
