OPPORTUNITIES BUT BEWARE

Management (Current Employee) Saint Louis, MO

ProsJust starting out as an associate is a great opportunity and if you show aggressiveness toward customer service and you show that you want to learn you will be recognized and have an opportunity to grow and advance. Make sure you are doing what is expected of you and communicate with your manager. If you meet or beat your sales plan there are very nice incentives like a cash bonus for all associates not just management.

ConsToo quick to write people up if they miss even minor duties. In stead of having a discussion and determining the reasons, some managers are too eager to write up associates and penalize them. Too much intimidation. Some managers feel like they are walking on egg shells. Company culture was never that harsh. Yearly salary increases very low maybe 2%. But, some of this negativity is dependent upon the store you are in. It depends upon the philosophy dictated by the individual store manager what they are push and expecting. Some are more understanding. Some on the other hand try to impress the district manager instead of doing what is truly the right thing.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so anxious to penalize people for simple things but instead be willing to teach and coach. The company culture has changed since the original founders retired.
