Mandatory Management Meetings Tues 9AM except when on vacation.Mandatory Special Event meeting for district on a 7 am sunday before start of event.
I enjoyed working with product. BCBG has amazing designs that are beautifully tailored. We had a cohesive staff of strong teamplayers, so even when short staffed we accomplished our sales goals and most of year number 2 of over 300 stores in sales volume.
The hardest part was always being short on staff. We had many recruits and referals for AM but most often they were not considered qualified for our location since we were an arch (high volume) store so candidates were usually given to other district locations. We operated the store with 2 managers for over 6 months. With adequete staffing I feel we could have far exceeded goals and be ranked #1 in company consistantly. – less
