      Pros

      Staff discount is 20% off fashion, beauty, shoes, accessories. 10% off electrical. You are normally surrounded by a good team of people that support you during stressful or understaffed days

      Cons

      Often understaffed. Not much room for career progression unless you want to move into a Full-time management position which is stressful and only pays you any extra $2 an hour. The business expects you to give your own unpaid time to the company, if you are an ASM, you are expected to be there from 8:30 in the morning and you arent paid to be there foe that first hour, and you dont get it back as TIL either. There is pressure from upper management to sell and open the American Express Card. Sometimes management looses its touch with its people that are bringing in the dollars for the business on the sales floor.
