I worked at Everything But Water full-time

Pros

Fun product, competitive but upbeat contests, weekly recognition of high sales, fair way to break down sales goals, relationships with other store managers.

Cons

Disconnect with corporate office, lack of specific market knowledge by corporate office (ie product sent to store is not product in line with our customers needs), UPT and ADS were unreasonably high for our specific market, DM turnover, financial compensation not consistent with expectations or store volume, high-volume store managers will consistently be harassed by corporate office and their DM's if even ONE stat goal is not met (even if goal and all other stat goals ARE met).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Know your markets better and be respectful of your managers. Pay better attention to your DM's - if a successful manager of a high-volume store has no problems with one DM, and then you bring in another in which there becomes an issue, don't always question the manager. Maybe the problem lies within the new DM.
