Give proper wage for amount of work being done. Get benefits for the employees

I would suggest not cutting all employee hours while hiring new staff. Hiring of adults would be an asset to keep the store running smoothly. Students are great for p.t. but are easily exploited. Manager should also teach by example so I would suggest getting off the cell phone and office chair and perhaps participate in the daily functions of the store.
Better pay and setting realistic expectations. But it's retail so it'll never happen. Stay greedy.

Talk to people when they do something wrong and don't lie to them, also don't abuse the probation end date.

I would suggest getting more full time workers there. Having more full time people will not only provide the store with better team, and the proper amount of people that should be there to help things run easier, but will also give those people an offer to commit themselves to their jobs.
Working part time, having hours shift from 8-25 a week is inconvenient, hard to work around and having a life outside of work it's hard.
