Ever changing and always growing

Inventory Manager (Current Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

ProsIt's a great company to move up in. They always promote from within the company instead of hiring from outside of it. I've only been with the company 10 months and I've gone from being a stock associate to an inventory manager.

ConsThere's always some sort of a problem that the store is having from sales, to back stock, but it never lasts too long.

Advice to Senior ManagementI'd like to have more rules to follow. I feel that the guidelines set out from HO aren't followed fully and everyone does it differently. So I'd like to have more strict enforcement of policies and protocols.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
