Insane Focus Goals with long hours and no thanks.

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

ProsYou always know how bad you are and that no matter what it is your fault.

ConsFocus on goals set by someone in corporate who is trying to justify their job, resulting in many small focuses that do not really contribute to the profitability of the store. There is a insane focus on "protection" and service plans that has resulted in many good workers quitting and being let go simply for not excelling in this not-so-profitable focus. The company as a whole needs to focus on driving profit per store instead of focusing on many inconsequential goals that are usually not achievable.

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out what you want to focus on and drive profit per store. Stop with the insane micro-focus culture and respect your managers' abilities to do their own jobs.

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