    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Occasionally, mfgs provide free items to employees.
    Discount at the ebar
    Time in a half on sunday in MA.
    2x year 40% off house brands.

    Cons

    Inconsistent scheduling. Look, it's retail, people have to be there when the stores are open but there can be a routine to scheduling.

    Vacation time must be approved in advance, but yuo don't know if you have received the time off until that month. Makes it hard to make vacation plans.

    No sick days: being sick can be held against you.

    No clear path to promotion.

    Inconsistent managment - by department.

    Sorrority girl attitude of over pep, over shiny.

    Advice to Management

    Qualify people as leaders: good sales people may not be good managers. Recognize the value of an education. Sometimes, it IS the customers fault.

    Cons

    NO work life balance, close at 9..leave at 10:30, Called in on days off to clean, Terrible teachers pet mentality for promotions. Extreme micromanaging, LONG days, too many events.

    Advice to Management

    Your clients are going to be ruined by the excessive need for events. People shop where they want because of the people and enjoyable atmosphere. Once you take that away, you loose them for life.
