    Pros

    It's rewarding to see how assisting people with physical disability can make a huge difference in their lives.

    Cons

    Bought by corporate takeover people a couple of years ago, the old Ride-Away is gone. The only thing the HQ is interested in is making money to buy up more businesses. They overcharge dramatically (and few customers can afford what they need, having to take out 10-year loans) and have a pay plan that hurts the salesperson if sales are discounted. The manager's assistant spies on everyone so he can make a case to fire anyone he wants. The company has lost some of its best people because the home office in Texas (who are a thousand miles away from any of their stores) makes cutbacks based on numbers and the share price, not who can actually help them grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is not the electronics industry. Customers see you as a high-priced, high-pressure store with a sleazy used-car salesman attitude. Stop focusing on growing locations for a while. Lose some of your top-heavy management staff (especially those clowns that came with the Florida stores) and put their salaries into running the business more efficiently. And btw, everyone who saw the "Great Expectations" thinks the "author" is a pompous burro.
