Good professional development to start at. Don't stay for longer than a year or two - you will be stuck in retail stores.
No work life balance, Associates are all angry, senior leadership play favorites. HR doesn't help managers at all - they care more about their metrics than store performance. They're so many senior leadership visits you don't have time to care about your metrics. You want to focus on developing your team but you have a DVP visit, RVP visit, prototype, regional meetings, etc.
Advice to Management
Revamp your score cards. Stop requiring Managers to coach associates with 20+ years and good cards. Fire HR managers that lose documents because they don't want their turnover score to go up. There's a reason no one stays.
