Pros

-Great training -- Product knowledge is key and in most stores I find that the employees either know, or in the process of taking classes to be in the know.
-Great Atmosphere -- It can be stressful, managers and sales associates alike, but I think we try our best to establish a fun work setting.
-Unique to other retailers -- Anyone at any time, who's trained, can be given any task to do. If it's a manager top stocking freight, or a sales associate doing a rotation.

Cons

-Managers coming from the outside in sometimes have the hardest time adjusting to the work. Most managers will need to perform with ladders and heavy freight. If you're at a smaller volume store there are times where you might not have anyone on your side to manage.
-Managers might come across as distant because of the sheer amount of work we're asked to do that doesn't always fit into the 48 hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The sales associates want to be managed. Nothing is worse than having someone come in and not know what to do. It helps build morale and make the associates feel like they've added something to the store.
