    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to take advice from senior employees and management on projects. they have no grasp of how everything works inside the store and when you try to explain that to them they will hear no part of it and this causes a lot of time wasted when a project is completed and they want to change it because it doesn't work. Just overall a very inefficient company.
