Fast paced, yet friendly and fun.

Senior Store Manager (Current Employee)
Duluth, MN

ProsThere is always opportunity for advancement and the company prefers to promote from within where possible.
The company actually cares about the people who work for them. They take care of their employees.

ConsSometimes plans aren't always thought through on the corporate end, so the stores end up taking the brunt of it, but that's pretty much it.
Other cons are ones that come with every customer service job.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen planning to launch something at the store level, please reach out to the stores for feedback on ideas before launching them company wide.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
