      Pros

      Wonderful Coworkers. Making a customer's day was always a highlight of the job. Staff promotions and discounts were great.

      Cons

      Basically everything; Highly toxic culture from the managers up. A lack of empathy and understanding that workers actually have a life and other commitments outside of the company. The Amex focus is to the point of laughable; you're a retailer, not a bank! But if you sign up customers constantly, you're worshiped like you've solved world poverty. Who cares if you make sales targets, work hard, it's always about that damn Amex card. If you're a casual get ready for the managers to ignore your availability too, then guilt you into coming to work even if you're sick. Even if you tell them weeks in advance, managers will roster you on anyways and pretend that you never told them. Finally, lack of staffing; you now run far below a skeleton staffing level, congrats!
