Pros

Days fly by, even when they are 12-16 hour days.
All major holidays off, although not all paid.
Your 1040 looks nice, until you divide your pay by actual hours worked.

Cons

AS A STORE MANAGER
Unrealistic expectations
Minimal staffing
Extremely physical and demanding
A thankless job

Advice to Management

District manager, let the Store Manager BE the Store Manager. Stop micro managing and maybe throw in a compliment every few months or so. If sales, productivity and store conditions are great, don't stop me from doing my work to point out a dust bunny behind some shelving.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, and an efficient management system.

    Cons

    The policies in place are great and fair in theory, however are not always followed or enforced as they should be. There can be a lack of communication between management and employees as well.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure policies are being followed and there is fairness in the workplace. Increase communication with employees.
