    Cons

    Senior Management sometimes sets goals at unachievable levels and timeframes.
     Payroll lacking in order to give customer service as needed
    Bonus is lacking compared to other companies
    Guidance is usually opposite from district leadership, to Regional and then Corporate staff
    Highly Loss Prevention driven and focused company, sometimes a little overboard.
    Shipping from DC's can incur quite a bit of shrink and no control by store, but all accountability.
    Lack of training for management staff leads to high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    More training for Management staff, a set training schedule with District Leadership held accountable, has to be supervised by someone outside the District Team.

    Payroll has to be looked at more closely as staffing levels can be inadequate at times due to cutbacks. Competition is going to be based on service and at times there are no sales associates on the floor to help.

    Getting out of touch with the customer seems to be the trend as the company cuts back on payroll and is using more visual aid tools for customer self service. This is good for the customer who does their research but not for the 1st time parent of a little leaguer, football player, etc etc.
