A fun place to work, cool merchandise but demanding sales, credit card and visual expectations with little support.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Bay Area, CA – June 12, 2019
Employed full-time for over 15 years, worked every shift and position from Sales Associate to District Manager. Job is fun but very demanding in terms performance of sales/KPIs, payroll, credit cards, visuals. Some recognition for achievements, but a good job can go unnoticed by distracted supervisors. Written communications from the HO are expected to be interpreted and executed with little support. Peer relationships was the saving aspect. Salary store managers expected to "work until the job is done", which for some unqualified, undertrained, unsupported could mean well past 50 hours. Lots of cost cutting in the past few years made it almost impossible to hire skilled employees that could achieve the expected results. Would go back as a PT employee to do "fun stuff" like stock and merchandising. Not interested in the politics of management.
