    Pros

    Great relationship with District Managers, they go above and beyond for their workers. The pay is partial commission, so if you are motivated by sales, the sky is the limit in the commission you can earn. Offer bonuses and incentives

    Cons

    Corporate is so far removed from the stores. They request that Store Managers work a minimum of 44 hrs/week during the regular season, and 48-50 hrs/week during the holiday season on a salaried pay. They go out of their way to figure out how to not pay their employees. Many weeks where payroll made a "mistake" and our earnings would be incorrect, or not paid out. Bonuses were paid out sometimes 6 months after promised. After leaving the company, it took 3 months to get my final earnings paid out.

    Advice to Management

    Work one week in your stores and see all the hard work that goes on even after you mess up their pay checks.


  2. Over 2 yrs with a pay freeze, insurance copays outrageous, and no room for advancement...its time to move on.

    Pros

    Commissions are ok. Great camaraderie among managers within a district. Upper management and corporate make their way to visit the stores so you get to meet who's in charge. Corporate big guys are very friendly and down to earth.

    Cons

    Selling the Spa lotion. Everyone has to sell the spa lotion or you may receive a written warning or worse. Lack of hours allotted per store leaves store managers working longer hours; small staff.
