      Pros

      Great pay and benefits Strong job security

      Cons

      Constantly chasing trends in sales where if you don't hit one specific KPI all hell will be rained down on you, even if your store is making money HR department without any teeth so it's hard to sack bad workers Expect us to help customers with any and all problems they have, but doing so would make targets impossible to hit, so you end up just not helping people where possible.
