Pros

The discount is really great.

Cons

The new regime is delusional and stressing the store management to the point where they are quitting.

Advice to Management

Stop taking on initiatives such as credit cards and harassment of the customers and requiring sales staff to be responsible for the crap. Stop ordering garbage that your core customers do not want nor buy and refusing to mark the merchandise down enough to liquidate before inventory.

    Pros

    there are some nice employees

    Cons

    Management is horrible. From the top down they work under the fear of the bottom line. Customers and employees come last, as sales, credit cards and "capturing emails" are the top priority-this is a sucky way to do business for what's supposed to be a classy store.

    Advice to Management

    NONE, they should all be fired. If Chuck only new what his store has turned into

    Pros

    The contests,discount, and building great relationships with customers and co-workers.

    Cons

    After Howard passed away, EVERYTHING changed. NOT people first AT ALL anymore. Sad. Was such a great place at one time.

    Advice to Management

    Senior mgmnt. need to get back to the core values of WS. Another thing, RESPECT and PRAISE go a long way.
