    Advice to Management

    Allow upper management yo actually meet sales people and not just managers since the managers are not truthful in disclosing customer needs. Have a more strenuous screening process for managers and a better system for Human resources. The manager was never available and always either at her other store or on vacation with no way to do anything until she returned or no offered way to do anything.
