    Advice to Management

    To the corporate office...go undercover boss and see how bad you value your workers. The goals you set are rubbish. Some are realistic but not when you add them all together and they contridict one another. Its hard to get anything done exp to your standards. Pay a little bit more to your workers like a 25% pay increase for promos and even a 25cent raise would be more tolerable. Stop dusting off our problems and our concerns that we bring to your attention like to much product overload. Change some of your rules.

    Pros

    Only one thing comes to mind, and that is the time I spent getting to know my customers

    Cons

    oh where to begin. The hours, the pay, the upper management who thinks they have all the answers, and the time I spent alone needing to use the bathroom!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, you all need to work one full month in your stores, new line, markdowns, conference calls, and the best, using your FTO so you don't go over in payroll
