    Pros

    Commitment to superior customer service. Good pay. Freedom to make decisions.

    Cons

    NO work-life balance. Not allowed to say "no" to customers, regardless of what they are requesting. Not enough hours to run store, managers on cash register continuously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue your focus on customer service but give the stores the tools (ie-payroll) to effectively so the job.

    Get in touch with your employees and don't worry about money for once.

    Pros

    The company offers great product training and has acted as a great educational experience. I've learned a great deal about retail, sales, customer service, and a variety of programs and software's used by the company. There are some amazing corporate managers and also great store/ operations/ and department managers as well. They treat the employees great.

    Cons

    Compensation and raises are very poor, especially for part-time employees. Some of the training methods are repetitive and unnecessary but there are some employees that need that kind of redundancy.
