Pros

Career development/training, no timeclock, discount, company cellphone, comfortable environment, company credit card, flex PTO, new technology, growing company, guaranteed paycheck

Cons

Poor structure, management disconnect, HIGH turnover, IT management is a puppet show, EVP fear and intimidation management style, not proactive

Advice to Management

The CTO is ineffective and doesn't understand what strategic, tactical and operational leadership are. EVP shouldn't be overseeing IT - not involved enough.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    If you commit to provide your best work ethic, you will be recognized by the store manager for great performance and acknowledge to the district manager as well.

    Cons

    The downside is the competitiveness among the staff to assisting customers so they can earn commission. When it comes to how much commission was earned at the end of the day, employees begin to complain that other employees are stealing customers away from themm.

    Advice to Management

    I highly suggest that a more organized system in regulating the employee-to-customer ratio. Ideally, it would best to have all the employees have equal number of customers to help but obviously some employees are better salespersons than others and having them have more customers make sense from a company's profit perspective. I just think some sort of measure should be introduced to minimize the employee confrontations in stealing customers away as their reason for not receiving enough commission.
