Great Product, Terrible Leadership

Store Manager (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

ProsDecent pay at store manager level.
Advancement opportunity if you don't want to have a personal life.

ConsVery task driven.
Zero training for associates and very little more for management.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of managing the "processes", try working with the managers. Too quick to hire and fire associates and managers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
