Disfunctional

Store Manager (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsI had a job and as with every life experience I learned some new things.

ConsThey pay you a salary with the expectation that you will work 52 hours. You are allowed a payroll budget for cashiers and assistant managers that does not stretch to the hours that you are required to be open. This means that you will be scheduling, not only your own 52 hours but also scheduling so as to not have to pay for an assistant manager. In effect, your salaried position, per hour will become closer to the assistant managers pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour Store Managers typically last less than a year. Spend more time developing good quality managers and a position that they would desire stay in instead of using all your time, money and energy running through slew of unhappy managers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
