I worked at Anchor Blue

Pros

Good pay, flexible, easy, good people, customer service program was nice, no secret shops, ability to run store the way you think is best.

Cons

The worst upper management in retail history, no integrity, people getting promotions they were not qualified for, no pressure or incentive to do well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have standards, hold people accountable for results, hire the right people, show some leadership in upper management, be consistent, look at what successful companies do.

    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

    Pros

    work life balance
    Friendly environment
    dedicated teams

    Cons

    decisions made on who you know, not what you do
    team does not challenge decisions, leads to too many mistakes
    lack of integrity in upper management
    always looking for next thing that will solve all problems vs. having a solid plan

    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
