Advice to ManagementAdvice

My store has a lot to offer, and after a few tough times has been growing. I feel like a lot of the workers really deserve a decent raise for all the long nights and extra hours we've put into making JCP "America's favorite store".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us the proper people/staffing to get the job done RIGHT. We need to invest our time/money into our PEOPLE (leadership included). Otherwise, we will get no where. Also, I never feel like I am appreciated, even though I bend over backwords for you, my team members, our customers, and while executing the monthly SET. Be fair toward all of your lead experts and not dump the majority of the workload on one.
