Pros

Something different everyday, ability to learn all aspects of the retail experience. Definitely broadened my knowledge of retail operations, merchandising, drive sales and profitability.

Cons

Direction from corporate often did not get translated well to the associates. Upper management expected a lot out of middle management. Lack of resources available to carry out expectations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to divulge mare information to store associates especially the management teams that are running the day to day operations.

    Like living under a mushroom - kept in the dark and given manure.

    Pros

    There are some awesome hourly associates that provide great customer service on a daily basis. They appreciate efforts placed in fighting for them everyday. Front line managers lead them into battle with inadequate equipment, unnecessary and arbitrary rules enforcement and they still provide legendary customer service.

    Cons

    Senior management team is one sided. Communication and ideas flow one direction - top down. The leadership style is very much cliquish. If you want to be recognized join the clique. Non joiners are left under the mushroom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up communication to flow two directions. Listen to the entire front line management team. Provide real focus groups where honest discussion can take place. Eliminate hand picked clique member only activities.
