Good Management retains talent

Manager (Former Employee) Detroit, MI

Prosgood discount, competitive salary, committed coworkers

Consdon't promote from within, inconsistent communication, lack of work/life balance, discouraged from using PTO (an earned benefit.)

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat store teams as valued parts of the organization. They are the front line working face to face with customers (very important). Keep them motivated through respect and consistency of coaching and recognizing successes, not only where there are opportunities (a win is a win= value). Focus more on career growth and the paths within the company to retain talent, coaching towards growth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
