keep away

Store Sales Manager (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

ProsI did have a great team, other than that can't think of anything positive to say.
some customers are nice.

Consthere are many where should I start,
1. demanding work load, unreal numbers of boxes arrives every day, price changes at any time in the week. rearrange products with short notice. DSM demands reports on everything

2.no reasonable hours given to perform given task

3.each store will have their own sets of policy depends on how much your DSM love you
4.too many coupons customer will not buy regular price e-mail is being sent out too many time a day
5.if a customer have a tantrum over a dress that was purchase last year, they sure get their money back,all it take is call to call your DSM. it make us at store level look so pathetic

Advice to Senior ManagementI believed there are many devoted workers in this company. it is so unfortunate the upper management only see the people who likes to talk the talk. treat your people with respect
then your company will not have such high turn over in staffs

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
