Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a Senior Authority, I am constantly on the top 1 rank for productivity in the region, yet fail to get praised. Instead, I get lashed at for going a whole shift for not getting an ECP/Insole while other associates are getting praised for getting 1 ECP/Insole in a WEEK! Managers need to distribute hours more to those who deserve it, and not just to those with the rank of “full-time” because most of them at my store don’t even produce metrics like others do. District Managers and Regional Managers need to micromanage the stores individually, because not all stores are built to run alike. Also, quit making Loyalty cards a big deal. Not every customer wants ones, so quit forcing us to making them sign up for one.

    Pros

    Very nice coworkers and had a blast working with my coworkers. Also enjoyed the flexibility of work centers and scheduling of hours.

    Cons

    Horrible training and preparation given to the employees. Management sits in their offices and does nothing to help out the store or business. Many times they wouldn't even come out of the office to speak with customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your store management is horrible.

    Pros

    There is really no pros to this job. The only thing is that they start you at a decent pay.

    Cons

    No hours given. My position was floor associate. But I was on register a lot meaning the store never got cleaned so the opening shift would always complain. Other employees were not friendly at all. No real training, pretty much you have to learn everything yourself. And I really mean that so customers would look at me like I was stupid. Managers were horrible as well. They don't know how to talk to people. One manager made me feel like I put the store percentage down with there rewards program since I started working there. They are all about numbers and nothing else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go to training on how to become better. Like really I don't know how they became managers. They all were very horrible.
