I worked at Anchor Blue

Pros

great work/life balance
awesome discount
some co workers are awesome
some upper mgmt are receptive to your opinion

Cons

company going through too many changes
upper management does not realize that ground level mgrs do more grunt work than being a mgr
some dm's are two cards short of a full deck, they are only concerned with saving their butts and not supporting the stores
they are a small company trying to be big boys in retail.
get back to the basics instead of following everyone else in retail
dm's show favoritism to alot of mgrs that do not deserve it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

upper mgmt needs to really listen to the front line, because they are the ones that are keeping your house of cards up and running

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the field, and dont be afraid to voice your opinion
    Try to develop a focus that does not change every few weeks

    I have been working at Anchor Blue

    Pros

    Relaxed environment but at the same time it's very straightforward. Management knows exactly what they wpneed you to do and you are commended based on your work.

    Cons

    At times it can be a labor intensive operation. Business is business, and workers have to sell that's how all retail works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mangement is doing an awesome job. Some sales training with sales associates would help because there is a gap between the selling ability of a sales associate and an LSA or the other management staff.
