Current Employee - Executive Team Leader - Assets Protection
Current Employee - Executive Team Leader - Assets Protection
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

1. Promotion Opportunity
2. Work/Life Balance in the Retail World
3. Transfer Opportunities (Located across the country)
4. Competitive Salary in the Retail World

Cons

1. Work/Life Balance - If you don't monitor this, you can get burnt out
2. Benefits - They're okay, but I think they could be much better
3. Holding team members accountable - Too many chiefs around corrective actions. A lot of talk with nothing getting approved.

Advice to Management

1. Let STL's have more power in the choosing of their executives. They are the ones who have to work them day in and day out.
2. Develop non-adjustable templates for writing corrective actions to better hold team members accountable.
3. Take a harder look at benefits across the board, they need to improve.

    Pros

    Be prepared to work lots of hours and every other weekend. Pay per hour works out to be in lower 20's. You will feel a lot of pressure to make the numbers, but they give you the tools to do it. People are great, but not a lot of work/life balance.

    Cons

    Learning to manage and motivate minimum wage employees is very difficult but valuable!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Crash course in retail. Letting you learn all the ins and outs in a 10 week period to see if it's for you.

    Cons

    Crazy hours. If your not drinking the koolaid then they tend to ostracize you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to take some constructive criticism. You can get better if you listen to those who are working for you!!!
