Work here only if you need extra money
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 25, 2018
Avenue was a decent place to work. The management of the whole operation however seemed to lack a lot of professionalism,no innovation, and very little career advancement. The typical work day was assisting our specialty clientele put together full ensembles to push more sales; merchandising; cleaning; and payment processing.. The only thing I learned from this job is no one can be trusted. There was a lot of drama and shady business going on... The workplace culture was stale and boring unless you brought your own ideas to the table and convinced others to get on board to feel like a team. The job was very easy..no hard parts at all. The most enjoyable part was simply chatting with the regulars you get to know and love.
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
everything else

I am still with the parent company, working for another sister company. Commenting is not something I will be doing at this time. As it would be a conflict.

Horrible place to work at
Asst. Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 3, 2017
This company wants you to go above and beyond for the little pay they give you. If you do not get people to sign up for there credit card or the magazine's they sell they cut your hours. The turn over rate is so high due to the fact that this company does not care about it's employees. They start people off at 7.25 and give them no hours.
Pros
Managers where cool to work with.
Cons
The employee discount
