    Very poltical home office environment. Became all about the dollar. Feel that CEO was very disconnected from the field. Making decisions without transparency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very important to be honest with your teams.

    Pros

    There's always room to grow with this company. I was hired in for holiday help and I was promoted to Store Lead a couple months later.

    Cons

    It's retail so the pay isn't as good as I would like.

    Pros

    Management is open and honest

    Cons

    so little time to complete all tasks needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more hours needed to train the right people for their jobs, we stress the right person for the right place at the right time but if they don't walk into the store as that person....we can't invest in them right away without sacrificing time away from our customers
