Out of five years we had 4 different store managers. The last one got fired for stealing and that's when I had enough.

ProsIf you build a relationship with other workers it can be fun if the management allows it.
Good Benefits

ConsLow pay low pay
No chance for advancement
On the retail level, most of the Managers are English majors. No thought for making money or success.
Management follows a book
Workers are not free to come up with ideas

Advice to Senior ManagementI would start looking for managers that are more business minded. When you have an employee that worked there since he was 16 and is going to school for business he should have opportunities. Not to mention corporate recognition and taking over receiving managers job for four months. Not a smart company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
