    Pros

    Management and Co-workers have a very healthy relationship.
    Fun environment.
    Luncheon events keeps staff happy and motivated.
    Managers are very reasonable with any requests and other talks you may have.

    Cons

    Can get trashed very quickly.
    It's standard fare for retail companies, but $8.hr won't cut it anymore.
    Payroll gets cut big time in some instances, you're guaranteed 12 hrs, but when thats the case multiple weeks in a row, it becomes frustrating.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, working with good people

    Cons

    Management was awful, focused on recovery and customer survey rather than actual customer service itself. Management focused on self image rather than the growth of its employees. Way too much responsibility for minimum wage. Expecting high quality but paying the bare minimum. Customers can be really ignorant.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the employees, raise hiring qualifications and pay.

    Employee discount, the store has amazing deals, everyone is really friendly and comes to work with a smile on their face. It's just a wonderful environment to be in.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, less than 20 hours of work per week and 15 minute lunch breaks - the only break.
