After graduation, my family was relocated to Texarkana, Arkansas, where I quickly gained employment in management, along with a special affinity for team dynamics, one-on-one consultations, and career-boosting toolsets. Arriving 2 hours prior to opening allowed me the time to meet with management, locate and establish key relationships with businesses throughout the community, and prepare for counseling sessions to be carried out later in the day. The management within JCP was instrumental in delivering direction and access to the materials needed to successfully complete the task at hand. The hardest part of managing the salon was developing a rapport with the employees who had sustained many programming changes and poor leadership. The most enjoyable part of the job was being a part of an internal transformation that boosted productivity, lowered overhead cost, and increased the teams morale. I found myself inclined to reach out on a personal level and assist staff and their families with far more intimate issues.
Opportunity to grow within the company and great leadership.
Too many changes were occuring within the organization as a whole.
