    I worked at Honey Birdette full-time

    Pros

    - NRM is awesome. Smart, tactful and very supportive. She'll get you where you want to go, and be cheering your name every step of the way. -- Character building: very high expectations and the opportunity for you to set and achieve goals you didn't know you were capable of.
    - Career focus: everyone is promoted from within ans great emphasis is put on pushing you to the next level; casuals become managers, managers become area managers and area managers become senior members of the business earning some serious cash. The sky is the limit if you are hard working and willing to hustle.
    - Owner is notoriously generous with incentives, dinners, and treats. Hard work is noticed here and it pays off in the long run.
    - INCREDIBLE product and generous discount.
    - Shop environment is luxe and classy. Your job as a staff member is to empower people to own their sexuality and make them feel confident. I found this great for my self esteem.
    - Getting to dress up for work every morning is a daily delight, wearing lingerie and owning your femininity.

    Cons

    - If you're a uni student or just looking for short term cash; this job isn't for you. Many hours unpaid and higher expectations from even casual staff than the rate of pay or job title suggests. This company has no room for mediocrity.
    - If you're a perfectionist store presentation will haunt your darkest nightmares.
    - Wearing high heels, heavy makeup and corsets every day can take it's toll on your skin and body. You must make time for unwinding and pampering or you will burn out or become quite ill!
    - Fast paced, stressful environment. You will lose sleep. You will forget to eat. Or you'll overeat. It's important to take care of yourself while working your way to the top!
    - Budgets can seem overwhelming when you first start, but with the right training it gets easier.
    - Mostly female work environment; it can get catty 🐱
    - HR leaves a lot to be desired, but I saw a massive culture and management shift in 2016 for the better
    - Work life balance is challenging.

    Advice to Management

    It wasn't an easy job, but I will always love HB. I was proud to work there and would return. Kudos to the new NRM who is an absolute pleasure to work for 👌🏻
    Dont lose your momentum for continual improvement and continue kicking some serious tush!
