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.
Spending 9 years with the company, I was able to experience the drive and determination to maintain consistency and stability through the extremely volatile economic downturn and help the company achieve success to come out as one of the better retailers. This company will give the opportunity to develop yourself in many different arenas to mold you into a better business person as well as challenge you on a daily basis. Overall I highly recommend this company.
