    Cons

    The store is very small so if you call out its a big deal because they don't have many people to come in and fill your spot

    Pros

    Can be fun, customer service usually has your back. The "customer is always right" rule doesn't apply which is nice.

    Cons

    No hours, constantly have to cut hours because head office is a constantly hungry child that always wants more and more money. They tell you it's a discrimination free workplace but then people complain and you get in trouble for sharing your views.
    Manager pay is not much higher than staff and is not consistent, will pay external hires significantly more than internals who promote and know the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so shady and two faced, try to understand how things are in the store. We can't flip a dept, run cash, run fits AND run clothes to the floor and process truck with no sales advisors on the floor because of no hours.
    Stop building stores so close but raising our sales goals.

  7. Ehh.. Not the best but it ok for a college student
