Pros

Great discount for store managers
Play your own music
Dress Code

Cons

Pay
Favoritism
DM's need some serious coaching and development
open bar at company events leads to unprofessional ism
Absolutely no HR department
No Loss Prevention
Unrealistic sales goals
no training program
My first day of work I was thrown into a store during tax free weekend with zero training with a seasoned store manager... with any manager really. Then I had to run my own inventory the next week. Did we even have a DM? Then when the DM finally shows his face it was a blast session about how I did not train myself or know basic store operations. That is very poor retail in my opinion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in your people. Train them before throwing them into a store. Coach and develop. Look into your DM's before making a un experienced toddler run 8 stores.

    Pros

    At the assistant manangement level and up you get to travel for additional training. You get to meet pers from al over the company and rub elbows with the higher executives.

    Cons

    Work life balance is difficult to maintain. You also tend to manage a staff of high schoolers, so you spend a lot of time feeling like you are a baby sitter or a child slave driver.
