      Pros

      Fun coworkers, sometimes have events for employees in store.

      Cons

      There was a distinct lack of communication between corporate management and local store management. There was very poor morale when your direct supervisor was not the person in charge on duty, lots of scolding and treating grown adults like they are in elementary school.

      Pros

      Co-workers were easy to get along with, they made sure of that Discount was pretty good, allowing me to get some brand stuff at a much cheaper price that I would overshop sometimes Management was actually caring but they weren’t able to organize it well due to lack of employees but not their fault

      Cons

      Sometimes you would have to manage cashier, getting rooms, and tidying up the racks by yourself and that could be stressful when you had those busy days (weekends mostly) or sales/promotions. Working with customers could be a pain
