    Pros

    As with everyone who works for this company I started as a Manager Trainee, from there I decided to go into sales. With my background in management I later decided to go towards the management ladder. Within a year I was promoted to Co Manager and a year later I was promoted to Store Manager. This shows if you work hard it pays off. The bonus structure from the entry level to the manager is set up well.

    Cons

    My only con is the relocation, but I knew about it when I decided to take the job.

    Advice to Management

    Grind it out!
