    Cons

    Upper level management/head office has unrealistic expectations but are unwilling to provide the recourses required to meet those expectations

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you have to spend money to make money. And no I don’t mean you should spend money getting Khloe Kardashian into a store and then cut store payroll the following week.

    Work with some really fun staff plus good discount

    Days can get very stressful especially for managers and that can get directly passed down on you if the managers don't deal well with it. Also all shifts given to part timers are all 4.5 hours to avoid having to schedule breaks.
