      Pros

      Managers and co-workers were very chill, not very stressful at all except during holidays and rush hours. Recommend as a first time job, especially if you're a shopaholic, the employee discount is great!

      Cons

      Feels like I mostly had to learn things on my own, very minimal training. Having to be searched like a convict every time employees leave the store.

      Pros

      Generous employee discount that could be extended to partners and/or family.

      Cons

      Worked at two different locations with the company in NY and CA and encountered favoritism, condescension, and a lot of unnecessary attitude. While I would not extend that observation to ALL of my managers and co-workers (there were remarkably kind and affable people!), it often seemed like the minuscule amount of power went to some of their heads; the entire culture of the company felt a little too cool for my taste and the micromanaging that did occur was often borderline insulting.
