    No work/life balance
    Inappropriate comments and actions of upper management about people's appearance.
    Little support from district and regional managers.
    Slow to resolve HR issues within store level due to inexperienced HR team members.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. Listen to concerns. Do not bad mouth other members of the organization to store level employees, really, don't do it at all.
    Respect and Integrity go a long way.
