    Cons

    Company is desperate to hire Managers. Recently we had a Manager who had a so called 20 years of experience on retail that mismanaged the store so bad. He didn't know how to run the store. He has no respect to employees, his way or no way. Everybody was happy when he left.

    Please do not hire a Manager that has a so called 20+ experience but no personality and disrespectful.
