No opinion of CEO

Pros

to learn how to have a backbone, no better place or culture to work
learn it hard, learn it well
learn EVERY aspect of retail and how to work a VERY demanding job
you earn a lot of respect by working HARD, VERY HARD
Stay clean and stay VERY focused
Good ole-fashioned work ethic will take you far here
You, the individual, can absolutely affect retail, as a whole
NO OTHER work environment compares; once you do WM, you've pretty much done it and it's FABULOUS on one's resume
After WM, most other positions are CAKE!
Expect fast-paced, no frills, take action kind of people and environment... which is very surprising to people from big city or very structured corporate environments... ain't NOTHIN' fancy goin' on here... simply HARD work and tons of raw talent, along with ingenuity... capped with lots of frustration often times!

Cons

corporate politics DO exist
they can truly mistreat people so watch your back at all times
you'll work your BUTT OFF, every single day. So just expect it, do it, and learn from every situation
Complaining won't get you very far at WM home office; you're there to do a job

Advice to Management

Stick to core moral ethics, which most of the WM's leaders do... but there are a few. Do the best to get those individuals OUT of the home office although I know from personal experience that there is little that one can do to affect that level of change. We all know who they are and it's disrespectful to allow them to continue with certain behaviors.

    Upper management is a joke

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to see assistants and hourlys run their business and they need to be appreciated more. Practice what u preach.
