    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The current store manager is a new promotion. Since she has been at the store, employee morale is subpar. Team members are treated in an unprofessional, disrespectful and demeaning manner - even in front of customers. She does not like to train and when she does - she speaks rapidly and does not appreciate someone taking notes. When questions are asked - she is impatient and abrupt. New hires do not like asking her questions. She does not take responsiblity for her actions or words. Rarely will she say "hello" to team members or "Thank You" for a job well done. When she works an early shift (7am) you can bet she will be in a bad mood and will not speak. When she is angry with you she will not speak to you at all, even on the sales floor. When team members cannot work when she calls them in - she will take it out on them by decreasing their hours. She is not open to dicuss new ideas - it's only her way. She has spoken disrespectfully about team members, giving them cruel nicknames, in front of other team members. She is not a good communicator and does not share information. She does not "creek in" employees on a daily basis. Information is shared more readily through team members than through her. She has absolutely NO people skills to be in a management position. When team members do a good job - she hardly gives any credit; however, she is always announcing what she has done. She stays within a short distance to the register to ring up sales, then goes back to her office, stays there until it get's busy - then returns to the register. She does very little stocking. She will start a project - then leave it for days or until she tasks someone else to finish her job. Her management style is one of intimidation and manipulation. For the Holidays, team members asked if there was to be something for store employees, her response was "you-can-do-something-yourself". Just about every team member has had unpleasant dealings with her and have paid the price for it. When she is not in the store - it's pleasant, team members work together, and it's less stressful. Staff is just happier. Attitudes are this: punch in- do what you are tasked to do - punch out. Management should do a better job of promoting personnel. At least make sure the Store Manager has excellent people skills (not just customer skills) to be qualified to BE a store manager.
