Upper management doesn't have a clue how to run a successful company.

Pros

Regular guests
Fellow workers
Discount on used product

Cons

Incompetent management
Raises only through promotion
Demotion/termination through questionable methods

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start listening to the wage slaves in the field about the issues that the company has. Start treating your associates like you really appreciate them and what they do, and quit blaming them for all your failures in leadership. Start cutting at the top, not the bottom. Company issues have little to do with the basic store associate, they have lots to do with the incompetent people who populate jobs from DM up. Go back to basics like Best Service in Town.

    I can't believe they cut workforce so much as to continually deny me a 5 min. break after 6 hours!

    Pros

    Availability of company health insurance plan after 90 days.

    Cons

    Management pay is so low that they have cruel folks in management that are allowed to continue because it saves the company a few bucks in payroll!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trumpeting that most cruel fiction that oh, yes, our sales are down, but the way we are going to turn that around is by letting our happiness be more evident...it will rub off on john q. customer and they will want to spend more time in our store and thus part with more cash... Your suggestive selling is so horrible to push us flunkies to push a product that is over priced. That is...a coke that is no more than a dollar in a machine is a mere $ 1.69 at Hastings !
