Camrose store not a positive experience with present manager
Customer Service Manager/Cashier/Shoe Associate (Former Employee) – Camrose, AB – 6 January 2017
What I Learned - merchandising, setting modulars, many different programs in the Gemini gun, different paperwork dealing with inventory and pricing, setting up for inventory and how to assume a leadership role.
Management - Management changed many times over the course of my employment. Only the last manager during my employment was the least liked, was very disrespectful to staff and customers, and did not support the associates. The assistants followed his lead.
Co-workers - for the most part I had excellent co-workers. Some I wanted ten of, some I wanted to move to another department. This is all typical though in a big company.
Hardest part of the job - dealing with management
Most enjoyable part of the job - customers, co-workers, doing a job to the end and seeing the results in a well-stocked, well laid out manner, and making sure everything was organized and well marked (both in the back and out on the floor)
The manager that I had when I was first hired and the next three (in rapid succession) were wonderful and made the store seem like a family. Had I answered these questions back then they would have been very different. The old saying is true...the manager makes the store.
