    Pros

    -Good store manager tried to be understanding and make things work as best as possible but it just wasn't realistic given the company atmosphere. -Discount on clothing

    Cons

    -Took away commission or made it impossible to attain -Never enough employees for the work load -Personal feeling clearly got in the way of making appropriate hiring/promotion choices -Products are getting worse (style and quality) making them more difficult to sell -Upper management was unapproachable and didn't seem to understand the business at store level

    Advice to Management

    -Pay attention to your employees, they have good ideas and actually interact with the customers on a daily basis. It would be very useful to pay attention to what your customer actually wants.
