    Pros

    Forty per cent discount on Guess clothing and accessories which is okay if you like that kind of thing.

    Cons

    Very little training at any level with no support from managers, district managers or head office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop placing such high importance on enforcing ridiculous guidelines forcing your staff to look sexy and concentrate on providing training for your teams.
