"That it's great place to be. You can work here with someone and you can become their boss or you become the boss. They believe in doing the right thing. They promote from within. It is a fantastic employer that has opportunities for anyone that chooses to work hard and wants to move up in the company. I worked for them for 17 years and enjoyed being part of this family owned company. It was built up from a small business to become what it is today. "

"I worked in Cosmetics as a counter manager and a beauty stylist and got up 8 weeks of 60% paid maternity leave, which was great. Since the environment is commission based, it was difficult to be a breastfeeding/pumping mother when I came back, as time away from the floor was looked down on. Sales floor was very competitive, as jobs are constantly threatened if goals are not met. Rarely were people actually fired though--it is used more as a scare tactic. Gay men were given preference in every area, as the general assumption was that women would purchase more from them."

"Buying offices: they own you. They expect you to work 10-11+ hour days because of the work load. Management also has no life so they expect you not to either. Not many women in leadership have children and if they do they are relatively absentee, so they do not understand the need for flexibility. Compensation does not warrant the demanding workload either."

"Work life balance is non-existent. If you have a family, re-think working in this field. You are expected to work holidays with no time in-between. When you grow into management you are expected to work 6 days a week during events or high season - with no extra compensation. Men are promoted through the operations divisions quicker then women. However, a majority of sales managers are female."

"No bonuses unless you're a manager, and no raises in a lot of departments. Cost of living raise is 0-3%, but usually about 1%. A lot of attention is paid to whether you get along with people or come across as inviting and smiley, regardless of your actual results. The word "b*tchy" was used regularly by my superiors to describe why I wasn't going to be promoted or given a raise, despite the fact that I got along very well with my peers. Other women received similar reviews. I was also criticized for not sharing more about my personal life and not getting emotional over feedback -- when my boss gave me negative feedback, he started crying, and remarked that he was surprised I wasn't crying myself. It later showed up on my formal review that I didn't convey I cared much about negative feedback and didn't take it seriously."
