Confession

a 

Senior Director

I recently heard an argument that men should earn higher incomes because they pay for more things in a relationship. Since when does what you do with your money outside of work impact what you earn at work? Can anyone explain the reasoning behind this? If that’s the case, then I should make more than another woman doing the same job with the same YOEs simply because I have a nicer home, take more vacations and shop at Saks instead of Marshalls? That sounds ludicrous to me.

    Inconsistent schedule ( that is all retail though ) Pretentious management Little room for growth. You can move up and become an APM, but you have to make sure the APM you currently have leaves their position.
