After seeing a good form of management where the GM and supervisors respect and get along well with one another, it is exhasperating to see upper management tense with one another due to a new GM. It is hard to see the capabilities of a great team, turn into nothing but turmoil under new management.To be entirely honest, I think the current GM should simply be fired, as she is probably the most incompetant leader that I have ever worked with in my entire life.Since she is obviously never going to be fired, and continually transfered from store to store (that's the way WM deals with their management issues), I can only suggest that the management staff listens to one another, respects one another, and gives and takes from one another. An open dialogue is the best way to go at this point. To continuously shoot down ideas from employees without consideration, is probably the worst mistake that can be made.
I would make a point to actually care about my employees and let them know about any changes or anything right off the bat.
The Company has fun product to sell, the employees are great to work with, however the corporate attitude is evident and have little respect for the people on the front line. Very bureaucratic environment with a lot and ongoing demands that are often unreasonable. The pay scale is very low considering the expectations. The work environment is unsafe at store level with poor storage organization and constant moving of fixtures with little payroll to support the work load and expectations. Great benefit, perhaps why people stay???
