    Store Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsManagement is open and honest

    Consso little time to complete all tasks needed

    Advice to Senior Managementmore hours needed to train the right people for their jobs, we stress the right person for the right place at the right time but if they don't walk into the store as that person....we can't invest in them right away without sacrificing time away from our customers
