    Worked very hard from 7-6pm and every Saturday 7-4pm

    It has gone terribly down hill... Quality and caring about employees are no longer the concern.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Smyrna, TN

    ProsLeased vehicles. That's it at this point.

    ConsThe best days as a place employees enjoy and are proud to work at are long gone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's all about saving a dime at the expense of quality and the employees. Unqualified people are promoted through the "good ol boy network." I used to love working here about 10-15 years ago. Management cared about employees then and actual knew what they were doing. The new style of management here are arrogant and pompous and unqualified.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
