    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in San Diego, CA
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Aaron Brothers Art and Framing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Creativity and Sales in a fun environment where there's always something new and different to learn/apply.
    Most customers are pretty low maintenance and many are artists or just looking/needing a designers input on their project.
     We strive to do the best for the customer, both in store and corporate as well.

    Cons

    Sometimes the lack of *consistent* communication from corporate to stores.
    Some customers can be problematic, but that's not uncommon in any industry (not only in retail).

    Advice to Management

    The salary caps that are in place for associates/framers (including for long-time associates) doesn't seem fair.

    Fantastic to be around art environment. Everyone I worked with had a passion for what they did.

    Cons

    Corporate expects to much but gives little resources to complete what they want done.

    Advice to Management

    Stop limiting the amount of staff while simultaneously bumping up the workload.
