The company ( not necessarily store leadership) needs to show they value their teams. A $60 budget to feed an entire store team a Christmas meal/party is not nearly enough! Show they care by not being open on holidays when the profit is significantly less than the wages paid for that day! Come up with a business model that will help sales that does not involve doing random unplanned discounts days so frequently that it hurts the performance of actual friends and family weekends! Doing them just a few weeks apart does not drive the business they are looking for. Secondly pay the associates fairly. I had a lead associate that has been with the company 12 years and makes the same as the brand new associates. When asking for some kind of better compensation for her it was denied. I have been in retail for almost 20 years and this by far is the worst place for someone to work and grow in the company.
