Management is a joke. Tell them our equipment is busted and it takes them weeks. Almost months to fix our stuff. Low on carts. They even said we are short 600 carts at our store. And we can barely keep up. Other stores around us have brand new mules to push carts and loads sitting outside the bays. And we cant even get anythi g new.
