    Pros

    good training offered to upskill staff, I found this most beneficial. good team spirit as well. God tips which helped a lot.

    Cons

    The hourly rate wasn't very good, hours often cut through the week so you ended up short of money. ften called in at short notice and frowned upon if you couldn't make it.

    I worked at The Loft part-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed making women look and feel great and being able to be creative putting together outfits for them

    The managers were unkind, I was told I would be hired for at least 10 hours a week (I was a student at the time) and I was never given more than 4 hours a week.

    Pros

    Very eclectic and very talented musicians frequented the upstairs recording studio! it is located in downtown Columbus, GA so you get a vey diverse clientele from hippie art university students and faculty to businessmen and military. It taught me to be flexible and accomodate. wide variety of customers.

    Cons

    The late night hours (until 4 am) did not fit well with my senior college hours. I am graduated with a free schedule currently.

    I have been working at The Loft

    Pros

    I really enjoy the discount and the people I work with. My manager works with our schedules and is very accommodating when time off is needed. As a student, this is a great place to work. I feel as if I know trending styles from working here.

    Cons

    It's all about getting people to sign up for the credit card and getting customers to spend money, which is why I frequently want to quit. I understand tender share and dollars per transaction, but the amount that it is drilled into us makes me sick. I received a good employee review; however, it was not as high as it could have been due to my inconsistencies with getting people to sign up for a credit card. The company doesn't seem to care about other experiences, such as return visitors. I've had people say if we continue to ask them to sign up for a credit card, they won't return. Additionally, the full-time manager doesn't like it when we mention the teacher and student discounts. She has scolded us many times for asking if customers are teachers or students because she wants to earn as much on each transaction as she can. Further, the part-time manager always has a bad attitude--something is always wrong, she is too stressed out, or "just needs a drink."
