Horrible Regional managers

1.4
District Manager - March 2021
unrealistic regional managers , uncaring of District staff. all district managers fearful of job. regional managers would hire two district manager trainees to ensure District managers understood that they could be replaced at any time. district managers would put in 80 hours a week. Hope Family dollar eats them up.
