Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire competent people to make decisions and do research that will provide data to drive the decision making process.

What I like about the company

They hired me when I really needed a job and was facing significant financial hardship.

What I dislike about the company

Executive decision making is fundamentally flawed and will result in the ultimate failure of the organization in the near future.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen more to your store managers. They are the ones who are on the front lines and know what is happening.

What I like about the company

I liked the people I worked with. Some of my supervisors were caring, helpful individuals. The product was fun to work with.

What I dislike about the company

The company changed focus from a customer service focus to a focus purely on sales. It didn't matter how good you were at other management skills (development, organization, delegation, communication etc) if you didn't make the numbers it didn't matter. Also, some in higher management would ask for your honest opinion on issues and new initiatives, and if you had any concerns you got labeled as a "trouble maker"
