Pros: discount, most people, the company itself
Cons: sales pressure
The highlights for me were the part/full time sales staff - they were truly awesome coworkers, the discount (40% if I remember correctly) and being able to have your own little "home" of a department for a little while.
Even though you are still responsible for the sales throughout the entire store, it was still nice to know that your little oasis was your biggest feat - and it was fun to maintain!
The only things I could say that is a con; sales pressure can be immense (but that's in any management job in retail) and unfortunately not everyone you work with will you see 'eye to eye' with.
