Love my job

Store Manager (Current Employee)

ProsNew upper management changes making for a more transparent company
Fair compensation
Good benefits
Clothing assortment getting better and easier to sell

ConsDistrict manager abilities vary from district to district
Need to pay floor associates a higher starting wage
Sales plans sometimes unrealistic

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be a way to promote from within. With stores so far apart there has to be some kind of training for advancement.
