    Pros

    Management was very helpful in teaching me the things I needed to know in interacting with the customers. Smelled very good in the store.

    Cons

    There was a whole lot of down time, especially during the weeknights before closing. Also, very long hours during the holiday season and stayed open for too long

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the hours around the holiday time. There are more people that come in during the day and on weekends, but staying open until ten on weeknights is a little ridiculous.

    Pros

    Management took the time to teach you every aspect of the store and how to interact with customers effectively. Product knowledge was readily available and they really pushed the idea of working as a team and not against each other.

    Cons

    Scheduling was not always flexible and management had a high turn around which would create tension within the store team.

    Advice to Management

    Always try to work together. Regardless if there are disagreements among management, they should be taken care of among that team and not involve other employees. This builds a stronger management team and ensures respect among associates.

  8. If you like working part-time with people in a sparkly place with low pay
