Gender Equality

No women do not have the same opportunities as men! It's not hard to figure out the number of leading roles at this company in comparison to men.

Career Development

Within a store all they care about is $$$, & not the development for individual growth most managers don't make time for that.

Job security

Restructuring happens all the time. Corporate lets these managers do as they please & care nothing for the little people that drive the results for the business.

Suggestions for improvement

  • don't just look at $$ for immediate gratification. Look at individuals who dedicated time and effort into making the company what it is today
