Current Employee - Retail Store Manager

Pros

The company offers a good variety of products to consumers and has room for advancement for employees.

Cons

Heavy work load with insufficient time to complete tasks.
Wage compensation could be better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce double work. (take one ad down to hang next ad that offers same price breaks) (moving seasonal/discontinued items several times to make room for new product when seasonal/discontinues items should have been reduced in price to move them out the door.)

Create policies that make it easier for management to hold employees accountable. A goal for productivity is not the same as a policy. A policy does not leave room for plausible excuses.

    Pros

    Working with the public providing service.

    Cons

    Not given enough payroll to run the store properly. No paid holidays for managers. No matter how many hours you work, you never get any more pay for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work load is unbearable. You are losing good employees because you burn them out.
