The PROMISE will PROMISE to scare guests away
Boutique Leader (Current Employee) – US of A – March 9, 2019
Company is going through massive changes, they have made it mandatory for all boutiques to have 1-2-1 coverage during the week, meaning that you’re alone for 4-5 hours at a time. This is fine during the day, but scary at night, especially in an outdoor shopping center like mine is. Stylists are only receiving 3-4 hours a week if they are lucky. Massive layoffs just happened at the corporate and district manager levels. Store managers are being told to “lead everything positively” to prevent their team members from realizing how bad the state of the company is. Upper managers have unrealistic goals and don’t provide the training or tools to help the stores. There is essentially 0 training for new store managers on anything other than memorizing THE PROMISE. You are plopped in a Boutique and left to figure it out on your own, and if you make a mistake, you are threatened with termination and written up. The “promise” sales model does nothing but drive guests away and make them uncomfortable. The days are long, with store managers required to work 42-45 hours a week but are “salaried” and get paid for 40. (There is a pending lawsuit about this). The product is junk, and the exact same items can be found at Marshall’s for 1/2 the price. The company places no value on people with analytical business minded thought processes who drive consistent results and only cares about memorizing the promise and who can fake-compliment the guests the most in the loudest, most obnoxious voice. 10 out of 10 don’t recommend.
