    Pros

    You worked hard, but went home satisfied every day

    Unions killed the company for good

    If you reopen, do not negotiate with the unions. It needs to be a union free workplace

    Pros

    My customers are the only good things. Pretty much left alone unless there is a problem. Pay is OK except it's not what it use to be

    Cons

    No support. The management don't have any real knowledge of the business. The manage feels that they can run everything from behind the desk

    Advice to Management

    Some one needs to be in direct contact with store management . The rsp doesn't have the time to stand around.
