Pros

Actually, once full-time you do get quite a bit of personal time off as well as vacation time. You can pesonalize how you run your store with limitations though.

Cons

Ever changing policies not communicated to management. Example: Working really hard as an assistant to get promoted and finding out the position NOW pays $10000 a year less. Willing to relocate anywhere for any salary is what company wants. Qualities undefined for management positions in store with no standard hiring requirements. Hard work does not get noticed.

Advice to Management

Don't boast "Quality of Life" for your GM's when there isn't any. Take advantage energenic people with incentives and drop the "Old World" ways of corporate budgeting. Some management may have the key's to your sucess but to buried in day to day grind.

    Cons

    Work Load Unfair Shifts Favoritism Too much personal talking among employees No Communication, I was a supervisor and associates would know things before me As a supervisor I was constantly placed on register because the lack of help and nobody could really train me Assistant Manager was more knowledgeable than Store Manager Needs to be a beeter way of doing shipment and markdowns, everyone has there own way very time consuming You have to Run the mic after every song and Im not a mic person and that is not what I was hired for I was hired to Supervise and guide others in the right direction to keep the store running smoothly.

    Advice to Management

    COMMUNICATION IS KEY!!!!! STOP TALKING ABOUT EMPLOYEES PROBLEMS TO OTHER EMPLOYEES THATS HOW PROBLEMS START.
