You'll develop a thick skin, or quit.

Bridal Lead/CST (Current Employee) Greensboro, NC

Pros-There is a great deal of autonomy to help customers.
-Working with brides and new home owners to create registries was the best part of my day. I really enjoyed taking them on what was essentially a guided shopping spree!
-In general my store was in a well to do part of an already lovely small city, so most of the customers were fun to work with, easy to sell to, and very polite.
-Lots of opportunity to move into management since very few people can tolerate the culture of abuse.
-If you're organized you can really shine during Back to School pack and ship season!

ConsCorporate seems to be stuck in a culture of abuse. I could often hear our DM screaming profanities at our SM and OpsM from downstairs. In one year we saw 6 SMs in our district step down to less stressful dept. manager positions.
Many dept managers were frighteningly lazy and left most of the closing duties to me - I was the CST. I can only pray other stores are better.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake some courses in anger management, communication, marketing, sales, and management. You'll probably see much less employee turn over. I was part of the team that set and opened my store, but by the time I moved away (and quit rather than transfer) I was the only person left from the original team.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
