Overall good experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsProvides excellent training for position, good written policy and procedure manual to ensure understanding of expectations, good benefits, good salary and bonus plan, only retail position offering every other weekend off

ConsNo autonomy for managing store, too many hours when co- manager is off through vacation or illness. Typical retail environment problems : abuse of restrooms, dressing rooms, difficult customers. Lack of appreciation by upper management, lack of input from frontline management to upper management,

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
