I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Retail is a less then desirable field but its nice to find a company that makes the field easy to live in. Great benefits for a retailer especially in a time when most are cutting benefits to save money.

Cons

Retail is retail, hours are long and change every week. Review is for the retail division, opportunity to advance is rare. Recruitment focuses outside the company not at promoting within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When possible set hours helps especially if you can. Not giving a set schedule just because you don't want them to get used to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in building learning experiences for people - often the people who fall are the ones who have the ability and courage to take things much further along.
