    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Some of the departments pay the sales associates on a commission basis.

    Cons

    The training program is weak. It is almost entirely computer based training. Most of the managers lack leadership skills and are frequently ignorant of storewide operations and procedures. The compensation is lousy for most employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some managers who know how to motivate and lead a diverse workforce. Take more time to train your new sales associates. Increase compensation for all workers.

    Need a long term plan and strategy
