    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    -Very friendly coworkers
    -Decent discount
    -Easy to get an initial promotion
    -Extremely simple work

    Cons

    -Trained to treat customers as distractions
    -Hourly pay not what it should be for Key Holder/Shift Manager
    -Despite simple work, far too many tasks are assigned at once
    -Lots of training modules to make well informed workers, except time is never given to take them. (management won't pay you to take them, and you can't access them off the clock)
    -Very little sense of a job well done at the end of a shift.

    Advice to Management

    Many (if not all) of the problems with the store I worked at could have been solved by making use of the training modules provided by corporate and having more people in store at once to help customers and prevent shrink.
