    Current Employee - Store Manager in Minneapolis, MN

    Pros

    Some great people as peers and employees. Fun environment. Really great product. Good practices where the product is concerned. Most peers have great passion

    Cons

    Low pay. High expectations with certain promotions - meaning can be pretty pushy. Good sales, profit and people management sometimes not enough to earn better wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust is getting better with employees, but you're sometimes a bit too keen to "work out of the business" employees that have been around a long time
