Advice to Management

Hold your people accountable and take ownership of your buildings. I have seen too much time wasted on things that can be avoided. Also stay positive and don't let the workload overwhelm you. I feel the Managers should be just as involved on the sales floor as the MM. You are a very important piece to running a successful store, they need your direction and encouragement. You are only as good as your team.

    Pros

    Most of the associates are nice. They bring in food to share with everyone. If you like to work very hard and accomplish nothing this is the place for you.

    Cons

    from a corporate perspective: Corporate employees are clueless as to what is actually happening in each building, yet they "implement" useless strategies to drive sales and reach shrink goals. Certain departments report to completely different departments, making it difficult to get ANY support at all from your superiors. Nothing is ever enforced, each store is told, literally, to not operate by the standard operating procedures making the SOP's completely pointless. Nothing can ever be enforced because everything is so inconsistent. NO opportunity for advancement, especially because they keep restructuring, downsizing and then "expanding" again. NO STABILITY. Micro-managment from corporate. Superiors often get "impatient" waiting for you to complete a task so they do it for you, leaving you with feelings or worthlessness. If you like being babysat by your employer, this is place to be!

    Advice to Management

    Get out while you can. DO NOT GO DOWN WITH THE SHIP
