Current Employee - Store Manager

Pros

Great benefits. Competitive pay. Fun clothing for kids.

Cons

Workload expectations are outrageous. Company is slowly taking hours away, which results in store manager working overtime on a salary pay. Corporate is trying to change so many things that its creating chaos. No work/life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have realistic expectations for your stores. Support your stores with payroll!

    Pros

    The management team that started the distribution center in Alabama was the BEST you could ask for. They cared about the associates, there were ample opportunities for advancement and the leadership couldn't be surpassed by anyone. That didn't last long!

    Cons

    The entire management team was replaced and not for the better. Upper management doesn't care about the associates or how hard they work. You would think that there would be some appreciation for the fact that you are working in miserable heat but they only seem to care about the associates that don't work and complain all the time. There is little to no training for new hires. They are thrown into an area for 5 minutes and hope that some info sinks in before they are moved on to another task. And god forbid you question authority or have an opinion. Upper management says they require honesty and integrity from their entire management team but I have seen more liars and manipulators walk thru than anything else. It's actually sad that what once started out as the best company I have ever had the pleasure of working for has turned into the place that makes a person physically sick to walk in to.
