    Pros

    I have a great manager that listened to my needs and provided me with hours and a pay raise. She deserves a raise and vacation herself.

    Cons

    The computer system needs to be updated to provide active inventory and ordering so that sales associates can see it all while they work. We need to be able to order items and make sure that our stock is current. Also, our product availablility limits us in attracting and keeping new customers.

    Advice to Management

    Please look into ordering new stock that matches the local communities needs and updating our computer system that makes us innovative and a place that people want to shop and think of first to meet their needs. Also, many positions are listed in the stores and never are filled. Why have so many sales associates when you can have full time permanent staff that utilizes all available hours instead of part time temporary staff?
