    Pros

    - you can sell anything and everything with in the store, (at different commissions %)
    - 30 min to an hour lunch’s
    - great employees
    - you can use your discount at the restaurant and cafe
    - client book

    Cons

    - management was from the states and didn’t have much clue of Canadian retail
    - It’s a bucket pay system.. you either get your hourly or your commissions sales (which ever is higher).
    - you rotate floor time before other employees.
    - discount 20%

    Advice to Management

    - actually care about employees.
    - stop with the favouritism .
    - don’t gossip.
