Store Manager, West Union, IA - March 17, 2013
I was too hired and joined the Store Manager Training Program. Working in the small towns isn't that much fun as everyone is part of some big family or with all the gossip everyone knows everyone’s business. I was seen drinking in the local bar where I was a Manager and everyone talked about it. Like I was some kind of alcoholic. First thing I only went out once a week and second thing is 80% of that town was alcoholics. I will tell you and others that ALCO will hire young bucks with college or 3 or more year’s experience. Most of them will not see over a year so about 85% of them will be fired or pushed out of the company by quitting. The 10% or so that see more than a year are placed in the better stores. They have about 260 stores or so and only about 30 of them are an "A+" store. I hope we can get more Managers to post on indeed and get some other feed back..
