    Fun work overall, but disconnect between corp and stores sometimes

    Nov 13, 2022 - Store Manager

    Pros

    Fun environment, busy, always changing. Multi faceted work dealing with team building, operations, visual marketing, training, loss prevention, sales, etc. I developed a lot of great skills in this role and am grateful.

    Cons

    I don’t think corporate really understands what working in the stores on a day to day is really like and how challenging it is. Tremendous pressure put on store personnel to sell and minimize shrink which can be difficult to achieve high standards in both at the same time.
