Pros

You'll meet and work with great people within your department.
It really is a team environment.

Cons

Management doesn't seem to know what they want.
One minute they'll ask you to meet certain criteria and the next minute they'll punish you for meeting the same criteria they just asked you to complete.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of hiring managers externally who go on power trips and don't understand the full rules of the store, why not try to train and promote internally?
A manager whose been properly trained and worked in the store from Day 1 will be more effective than somebody who has experience from a competing name brand.

    Good for students, or the discount. Avoid as a career.

    Pros

    Fair wages, great people to work with, great opportunities to move up the corporate chain

    You must work during boxing day and Christmas which can be challenging. Also, they really push you to sell service plans for their products.
