I have worked for Christmas Tree Shops for many years....my advise to the company would be to go though the stores & pick out your "star" employees...each store has "star" employees....be sure these employees are treated well, praised,respected...you want to do everything to keep these star employees! Have a "star" employee,from each department head a small meeting once a week to give their group a chance to talk about problems that may be happening or concerns they may have. Ask what they would do differently to improve the workplace. Take these concerns or suggestions from each area to management who would have a meeting once a week to go over these issues....that would maybe stop people from complaining behind managements back & the employees would see that, hey, maybe they really do care. Don't waste time on employees that do not care, call out all the time, or do not take pride in their job....reward the employees who want to work & do not call out all the time with the hours.Boost moral in the stores....that is key!! Look closely at who you have on the front end!!! These employees should be people pleasers, bubbly, great personality, approachable!! This is sooooo important...Iastly, bring back the sheetcake once a month from Sams Club to celebrate the birthdays taking place in that month....$25.00 could go a long way :)
You need to find a way to boost your moral and quick! Your company is getting a bad wrap! Listen to what they people are telling you. The store managers and burying your stores. They pay is aweful, take care of your employees! You have lost so many great people, and it's your fault
Get rid of your scum bag recruitment who has mo idea on what they are doing. I hope your company burns
Pay more to keep employees.
Give steady hours, stop cutting down on hours and pay. Talk to the management about favoritism.
I have worked as an over night stocker as a seasonal employee. I have spoken to employees who work at Christmas Tree shop all year. They "have" to work other jobs in order to survive. Why is that maybe you asked? Or maybe not. You all probably know the answer. They all enjoy working at Christmas Tree Shop but the hours the company cuts them down which means the employee pay checks are not that great. If the company finds dedicated employees the company should show appreciation and show their employees what they mean to the company. Show them more hours, more pay, with more respect.
Stop hiring and allow present employees to make a living,instead of starving people out of a job. And don't let managers play favorites constantly- very sad work environment!
Not to hire so frequently, the newer associates always get the hours while the older associates get pushed to the back corner.

Get someone new to run your Fredericksburg store because Michelle is ruining your business and causing you to lose workers left and right.
