-nice merchandiser training vids

Cons-wasteful with product
-high turnover in management
-not great pay and hard rushed work

Layoffs can happen at any time without warning. You're told, "be glad you have a job." - Lots of senior management promoting… Advice to Senior Management: This is a business that has run a certain way, with a specific mindset for one hundred years.
