Music, pop cluture, records, fashion, fun!

Part Time Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Miami, FL

Prosgreat job that suited my personal ethics and style. I was a happy and willing brand ambassador.

ConsMy store location was closed down quite abruptly. My DM was not informed either which meant There was no opportunity for my relacation to another location within the company. Overall, my particular situation was handled with little to no tact or concern for maintaining a superb store staff and management team.

Advice to Senior Managementrealize that your employees are human beings with families, mortgages, and lives. We are not some number. The company has started to forget this as Lisa Harper took control of the company. In my store's articular case, she willfully closed down a very good performing store with no plan of moving locations, which may effectively lose the company some of its clientele in the area.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
