Pros: lenient breaks
Cons: upper management decisions
At journeys, there was always something to do. There was always something unfinished. Normally, we would just fill in display merchandise and organize visuals. I had to manage shipment in and out of the store from warehouse, other stores and individual customers. Sometimes tasking became overwhelming but that's just part of the job. The staff I managed were amazing with the exception of some. Trust was a big issue because a lot of merchandise came up missing sometimes, and having to replace staff was difficult. When it came to replacing management staff, my supervisors never hired within, which is actually only of the company's core value. And Most of time time these new hires were extremely untrustworthy. Whenever we came across a problem, my supervisor usually came up with risky solutions that could put our jobs in jeopardy. Stressful as it was working as a manger for this company, I learned a lot of made some amazing friends. I learned how to oversee a whole store and the staff within, how to delegate tasks, how to make quick on the spot decision and my communication skills vastly improved. Overall, the only enjoyable thing about working at Journeys is the staff you work with that ARE trustworthy.
