Fun and fast paced

Store Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

Pros*Advancement is easy/fast
*Small store teams creates a "family-like" environment
*Lots of change, all the time

Cons*no accountability for dishonest results
*High pressure to achieve results
*Often single covered and must be able to balance task and service
*PT/ers often get a large fluctuation of weekly hours
*pay is not competitive
*dress code is strict

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a pay cut or give up a bonus or two...invest that money into more payroll to allow 1 tasker and 1 SMILES person at all times at all locations. If you TRULY believed that SMILES made that big of a difference in sales, you would have no problem giving up ur bonus for the potential sales increase.

Dont be so arrogant to believe that associates dont call in their own surveys, falsify coupons, and mark down product to meet your crazy standards
