    I have been working at Plato's Closet part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good stuff to buy! Discount 20%

    Cons

    Treat employees like crap especially if you're black. The owner & her 2 mgrs are all over the place. One says one thing, one says something else. They're like the 3 stooges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication. The owner either needs to run it or let the other 2 mgrs run it and not interfere. It's kinda chaotic. Stop talking down to people and criticizing everybody. Maybe that's why employees don't stay.
