Draining

Store Manager (Former Employee)

ProsGreat discount, overall store environment was fun, ability to interact with customers and get to know them, great store associates who worked hard.

ConsWay too many "new hires" brought in from outside the company to be upper-management who don't understand how things work on the store level. Corporate office is so far removed that they set unrealistic expectations without knowing the day to challenges that the stores face. Using a computer program to tell stores where to schedule employees instead of making sure the departments are covered which in turn make sure that customers are able to be helped and projects are able to completed.

Advice to Senior ManagementDuring your "back to the field" days, actually visit the stores that are struggling instead of going to your top stores and do that store manages job for a day. Stop trying to fit 140 stores into a cookie cutter mold when only about 10% of them can actually fit it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
