Pros

It's a comfortable pace, you get to work around a music minded environment, helping people find the newest Celine Dion album is ultra rewarding.

Cons

Minimum wage jobs suck. You are in a busy mall over the holidays earning only enough money to get yourself home on the bus and if lucky a meal while you are there.

Advice to Management

Keep on doing what you do... taking advantage of consumers with your overpriced, outdated technology.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere as well as great people. Good working environment, OK staff discounts. Working in London makes it quite a social hub too.

    Cons

    Some bad management at times, not enough staff discount, can't really say much more, there's no more negatives that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff more. Communication within the group should be a hell of a lot more transport, we should also have more head office meetings.
