After having 10 years in retail experience I thought I was finally ready for a Store Manager position. I moved across the country so that I could have this opportunity with Diane's however it was soooo far from what I eve expected. The store was incredibly understaffed when I arrived, merchandised terribly and fixtures/ cash wrap/ mannequins were held together with tape. I additionally found out that I was working directly under a General Manager (therefore not my own store) that was going to be paid exactly the same as me.
It was bizarre from day one. Things just progressively got worse. After about 5 months both my District Manager and General Manager just walked out because they could no longer tolerate working for Diane. She is incredibly invasive and will just sit and watch the store's cameras and then call you directly to "call you out" if she sees something she does not like.
Additionally, you, as a Store Manager, do not merchandise your own store. Someone from corporate will come with literal trash bags to process and then merchandise during operative store hours. Often times there were swimsuits in piles on the floor in plain sight of our customers. Absolutely appalling.
10/10 would NOT recommend anyone work here. EVER.
PS do not take this review lightly if you get a job offer. Things will not change with that company, decline the offer. You WILL find something better.
