Pros

constantly changing workforce makes it easy to promote because people quit or get fired every week due to stress

Cons

each store has their own agenda..Different ways each manager wants stuff done

Advice to Management

Add more labor hire office personell and if you want stores to be recovered real good maybe more than 2 people should close daily

    Pros

    They have a great plan for business, and if you follow it you can have a sucessful store

    Cons

    They do not give the proper hours to keep the amount of help in a store needed to get the results to provide a wonderful customer experience

    Advice to Management

    listen to your store managers when they give you insight fron the front lines. If the managers had sufficient hours, training, and training hours they may have teams that would provide less shrink, and more work. Most employees don't understnad what the goal is so they just don't care. Internal theft, and waste comes from untrained employees.
