    Advice to Management

    Never judge a book by its cover. Truly take time to determine who are hard workers, smart workers, result drivers and those with no passion. I understand business and understand reducing payroll- but doing so must come with the understand that workload must be cut accordingly. Those that do meet high expectations make high sacrifices (10-12 hr shifts to catch up since Store Managers are the ONLY free labor) that shouldn't be expected to be made EVERYDAY. Reward them with time to do their job - MANAGE not task. Too many times MANAGERS turn into glorified sales associates. Consider making ASMs non-exempt or putting in more Co-managers.

    Pros

    summer hours, lots of PTO and vacation days

    Cons

    lots of overtime, they need more people but they keep cutting budgets so you are just expected to get all the work done no matter how much overtime it requires.

    Advice to Management

    you need to have monthly meetings with EVERY member of your team, not just your direct reports. One bad supervisor can ruin an entire department and managers are clueless to what goes on behind the scenes when the supervisor just blows smoke up their as**es.
