    Pros

    Floor managers do praise a job well done and are quick to recognise talent and ability. Also the benefits are good.

    Cons

    Too many floor managers at times create confusion amongst staff regarding what needs to be done. Rarely ever see store/area managers, it would be useful to get feedback from a higher level which isn't filtered through several other managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more feedback and trying to sell the Directory to distracted shoppers is a hard job and too much pressure is put on reaching targets that are often impossible to reach, creating a lot of Directory applications with false information!

    Pros

    Part-time work possible
    Easy prep each day after initial stages
    Interacting with young trainees on the threshold of new career

    Cons

    They even tell you how much coffee you are supposed to consume.
    Office facilities are lousy... no properly maintained washrooms

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the trainers with respect
    Be fair when it comes to promotions etc
    Hire people who know the subject...especially the head of the training centre
    If you want the business to continue, you need to be more professional in dealing with clients

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
