Pros
  • You get a 40% discount on their clothes, which is good because they are very cheaply made (in 16 reviews)

  • The employee discount is decent, but that's literally the only good thing I can think of (in 7 reviews)

Cons
  • Upper management not only is on different pages but in different books (in 18 reviews)

  • The new district manager is driving my old store into the ground (in 10 reviews)

    Pros

    Fun environment, great coworkers, discount

    Cons

    Constant price changes and lack of hours.

    Advice to Management

    More payroll hours to help customers. It's hard being alone in a store for 4-5 hours at a time.
