No opinion of CEO

I worked at New Balance part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good experience working directly with customers, very fulfilling for a retail job, good company/benefits

Cons

Stressful during sales and due to poor management, no input to store/company, opportunities for advancement limited

Advice to Management

You can gain a lot of insight by listening more to the people on the front lines actually working in your stores- they are your untapped resource.
