Pros

It becomes more bearable once you get to know your co-workers.
Flexible schedules!

Cons

So many rules! It is ironic that they are big on diversity but force us all to dress and look the same.

Advice to Management

Train your managers better. Most of the new managers seem to know nothing.

    Pros

    -wear jeans to work
    -talk about looks all day
    -sleep in if you're closing
    -potential for promotions (if you can survive 3 years of working in a mall and being treated like your life is meaningless)

    Cons

    -you conribute $$ towards clothes that only high schoolers should wear
    -the training in the MIT binder isn't followed whatsoever
    -your supervisor probably was promoted based on no skills/running a retail store or leadership
    -you always work weekends if you aren't the SM
    -a friend of mine still works for the store and says her pay is lower than it was a year ago

    Advice to Management

    Track assistant managers more thoroughly than through SMs and DMs. Your turnover is so high because the SMs and DMs have no leadership/management skills. Just because they take phone calls all day doesn't mean they know what's going on in their stores.
