Now that I am out I can tell what I know.
My first store. One of the assistant managers deliberately hired an alcoholic because they had it with the store manager who was a walking te---r. So not only did we have to deal with a psycho running the store, we had a loser who hit on all of the customers and female employees, aside from making all kinds of mistakes.
The second store was even worse, It was like a hornets nest. The women were always having fights with each other, I felt like I was in a soap opera. And everyone was always in a bad mood, the manager instigated much of it. And eventually, to no one's surprise, the store closed.
I seriously don't know how this company hangs on. Or more importantly, why people still go to work there.
