    Advancement for those willing and able to do their jobs correctly and efficiently.

    It can be very stressful at times when a rush hits and your team and you are not meeting goals or expectations.

    Listen to the employees more, they have good ideas. Also make sure they are taken care of, your turnover rates and store performance directly depend on how well you treat your employees.
