    Pros

    I had fun meeting new people all the time. The managers were friendly but very strict about lunch breaks and shift exchanges. Overall it was a great experience, except when I meet Michael Jeffries at the highest grossing store in the U.S. which was Woodfield Mall at the time. He was very rude considering I was so valued that they wanted me their to meet him. So glad they fired him!

    Cons

    Lunch is short and pay could be better

    Advice to Management

    Give some more consideration to employees
