    Pros

    Heath insurance is good, work/life balance is good, the bonus is good. The upper management is doing a great job running the company.

    Cons

    People have been working there 10-20 years and very set in their ways. Most are rude to very hostile which makes the working environment very stressful and unpleasant. The pay is very low and the vacation/time off is not good. I would not recommend this company because of the current long term employees making it an unpleasant work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of long term employees who are doing an average job. You need new blood and people who actually want to work there instead of just draw a paycheck.

    Pros

    Chance to meet different people.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours with no real breaks, most employees are not team players just folks looking for some quick cash so they can move along.

    Advice to Management

    Develop the store team to care more.

    Pros

    How much you learn, if you can learn everything and handle the work load you can work at any other chain and it will be a piece of cake.

    Cons

    The pay vs work load and no good feedback. OM and DM usually will only notice the things that are wrong, even if its petty. They are reluctant to give any good feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic on what can be done, we hear when you all had your store this and that but in reality its like you all forget the challenges every store can face. Give recognition when its due instead of bringing your managers moral down with every visit!

    Pros

    very autonomous, expect little to no supervision or contact with your management unless something goes wrong. This is good because you can run your store as you see fit, within corporate guidelines of course.

    Cons

    no feedback, poor compensation, no communication, lack of work/life balance. Because of the lack of communication and supervision, you don't really get noticed if you are doing a good job and have little growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Levels of management are too far apart, store managers rarely have contact with district managers, and next to never with operations managers. Upper management does not have a realistic view of operations on a day to day basis.
