Pretty good company as far as retail goes.

Store Manager (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

ProsThe benefits are very good. Between 401k, medical and a generous vacation allotment the company take care of you.

ConsConstant change. In search of better processes the company is constantly changing how we do things and unfortunately most time is for the worst.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop micro-managing. Empower your people to make decisions. Listen to what the people in the field are actually saying.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
