    Pros

    Great job for a teenager, discounts on all their clothes, first come first serve on new clothes, free clearance items, high pay for short amounts of time.

    Cons

    You must wear their clothes, must fit into the clothes, environment (cologne, lighting, loud music)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of locking the changing rooms, we should just keep them open unless someone is inside and can lock it from the inside. Also, we should have uniforms or have to wear matching clothes so that customers know we are the employees.

    Fun people to work with
    MIT program

    Not rewarding
    Loads of hours
    Upper Management just think about themselves and being promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making promises that you will never keep.
    Before becoming a employee, people are human being... try to remember that

    Pros

    District Managers get the ability to manager big business and hire own management staff. Good PTO starting and gets better as you go.

    Cons

    Not a huge upside after District Management position. Home office is located in Ohio and in order to get promoted to anything after, need to move there.

    Pros

    Fun people to work with. Always get to meet someone new. Discounts

    Cons

    Under payed. Hardly any hours per week. No raises in small stores

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the veterans of the store more hours than new hires. Or the people who actually do the work.

    Pros

    Great first job in management realm -- at a young age individuals are able to learn about running a business in a structured environment.

    Cons

    Relocation is often nessesary to advance in management roles -- which is fun and exciting at a young age -- but can become tiring. Long hours, no holidays, typical retail schedule.

    Pros

    Great social atmosphere. Really fun coworkers, managers -- keeps you going to work everyday.

    Cons

    Company is going downhill so no more resources. Managers have to act like part-timers. Upper management lacks communication and insight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your fellow managers instead of being on a power trip. Humble yourself, it's retail.
