    Current Employee - Store Manager in Los Angeles, CA

    Pros

    Stong earnings, company is cash based as far as fixturing, store equipment , and real estate. This company is opening up additional locations. Company has a lot of potential to be a contender in the already saturated market place. Company is attempting to modernize company practices and policies

    Cons

    Unstable Human Resource Management, deals poorly with associate issues (especially with compensation ) Also many district managers lack the skills necessary to teach and train future DM's and leaders. Communication break downs are frequent. Store support center (corporate) lacks respect for field team. Senior leadership focuses on negative feedback more often than positive reinforcement. Senior Leadership are disconnected from the realities of running a store (in the current day and age versus five to seven years ago when the company had little to no structure. Lots of do as I say and not as I do mentality that lowers store leadership morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at your Store Manager "training meetings" that are intended to be constructive, you may come to find out these meetings have become a 10 hour barrage of negative comments, poor feedback, and threatening innuendos. Take time to tell your store managers when they are meeting metrics, hitting sales , and producing results. Remove the favoritism that plagues this company , . , this will all trickle down to the store and impact the morale of the associates that care about the future and growth of this organization.and teach future 99 leaders to

    Former Employee - Human Resources Generalist  in  Huntington Beach, CA
    Former Employee - Human Resources Generalist in Huntington Beach, CA

    Pros

    You can slack off and no one will notice at least at corporate.
    Flexible laid-back company.
    Large, family owned company. It is stable and good for people who are not extreamly driven, but want to make a decent living.

    Cons

    Low communication between corporate and retail locations.
    They will fire you if upper management decides that they don't like you. If they don't have a reason they will find one.
    No regard for federal regulations or cencept of ethics. High turnover for a reason.
    Doesn't really matter if you do a good job, a great job or a bad job, as long as you "try" to do your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a merit system that is not only based on sales and financial performace.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
