Suggestions for improvement

  • I would get rid of coupons at all locations and eliminate the management at several locations. I think that no coupons would be so much easier for the customers. I would also strengthen loss prevention standards, as our store sucked at that.

What I like about the company

I met my best friend there, and I got to be the best sales person. I ranked #1 in the store 3 years in a row as top credit salesman, so I got to learn about that a lot.

What I dislike about the company

Get rid of the coupons and the management at my location. They were the biggest thing I hated about the company.
