Pros

Decent pay at management level. Workload is acceptable.

Cons

They move the target so your bonus is never obtainable. Sales goals are set so high and not close to realistic in today's economy. Seeking a 12% increase in sales in established store with less inventory and higher pricing is silly. Increase the pay of your sales associates. 4.50 an hour plus commission will get you nothing but bad return on investment.

Advice to Management

Set realistic expectations. Quit deviating from your plan. You manage by crisis and metric topic of the week. The potential is great if you would set short and long term goals.

    Pros

    This was an easy job and it was not very fast-paced.

    Cons

    Terrible Management. Stupid corporate strategies and enforcement. Unethical sales of credit cards to elderly customers.

    Advice to Management

    Be respectful to your employees. Good employees are key to a successful business. Study management classes before being manager.


  2. Good place to work ONLY if they like you, so when you threaten to leave they increase your pay.

    Pros

    Your workday isn't micro-managed. Good dental insurance.

    Cons

    Medical insurance is unobtainable. It would take 1/3 of my paycheck every week. Everyday store communication is nonexisitant. Its hit and miss to catch essential info necessary to perform your job. Understaffed and underpaid employees can barely touch the surface of tasks and issues necessary to attract a larger clientele.

    Advice to Management

    I see it everyday - the effort put in to thorougly complete your job isn't happening. Team work rarely occurs. Why? Whynot? Effort requires caring, and caring requires incentive.
