    I worked at Ann Summers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great training and progression. Feels like a family

    Cons

    Some customers only come in to be immature which can be annoying but no other cons at all!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Maybe look into a commission scheme for toy section over a certain amount of money spent per customer.
