Unfortunately some of the management staff and higher ups have become somewhat of a toxic environment, despite the love of my work itself it appears that there is little to no true advancement within the company let alone the store itself. Frequently over the past few years any positions in management that have become available have all been filled from outside of the store, and outside of the company itself, with little true consideration for the internal applicants who already know half of the training required to do the job properly.
