Pros

There could be opportunities for growth if you're willing to put up with open ended promises.
Having fun with the employees really made my days and helping them in their personal growth and leadership development growth.

Cons

Lack of support from the district and regional team.
Lack of technology in POS systems.
SOP on Store Managers to review security cameras to monitor internal theft/shrink - To a point where external shrink was considered "out of sight/out of mind".
Benefits are okay but you pay more than the company for those benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not recruit individuals to your management staff stating they are in their current position until a DM or RM role opens up and leave it void and null. In writing, in emails and over phone interviews this was claimed and never followed up on. When asked, all parties claimed to not have stated these words; however, proof was in email with their corporate email address attached.
Store managers need more field support and rely heavily on their peers for support rather than their DM.
Inventory control is a nightmare, need to update technology to account for all "known theft" items, not just logs for certain items.
