She was quickly hired to work alongside 2 other assistant directors, one of whom had more management experience than she did, as well as both full time and seasonal employees. Tricia was highly motivated after training commenced but was not aware of the current state of the store and would become increasingly dis-enchanted over a period of a handful of months.
