As a seasoned employee this was the worst employment experience for me. BAD MANAGEMENT

Key Holder (Former Employee)
Brentwood, CA

ProsThe associates all worked very hard to please the store manager

ConsNo training.Management constantly lied. Manager always negative to employees. The constant threat is: corporate camera is watching your performance++

Advice to Senior ManagementTraining, training, training for key holders. "Positive" management style. Remember there are customers in the store during floor moves and corporate needs to be considerate of that fact when placing a time limit on the moves. Being threatened daily with: “corporate cameras are watching” does not present a positive work environment. Hire managers who are not chronic liars.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
