Very hands on work environment. Great company
Pros: able to be in constant contact with our home office, and managers were given a lot of responsibility and say in individual stores.
Cons: new company struggling with growing pains and limited organization
Very new company with a lot of really positive aspects. As the store manager, I wore many hats; throughout a typical day I would manage, I would perform stock duties, I would file, I would be a customer service representative, and a merchandiser. Because the company required such a hands on manager, I would find myself delegating a great deal to manage time wisely. My staff was very passionate about the company and really seemed to enjoy being at work. My management team was also very hands on and very young and eager to learn. With the company being so new/young, there were a lot of growing pains and some disorganization within it's corporate structure. However, while there were some slight conflicts with the structure and organization, the company was very passionate and flexible with it's stores and managers. It's been a great learning experience, and a lot of fun.
