    Pros

    The job all in all is relatively easy. The most challenging part is dealing with customers, which is an art. The people you work with can be fun. The managers that I worked with, worked hard. Lots of laughs. Lots exercise (I now have battery muscles). Learned a lot of technical things I wouldn't have learned any where else.

    Cons

    Corporate and franchise are rum like two different businesses. Owners don't are becoming out of touch. Winters unsheltered in the upper mid-west is burutal installing batteries in -50°wind chill. The spiffs are a bit of a joke. Micromanagement becoming a problem. Work load for pay becoming unbalanced.

Batteries Plus, now Batteries Plus Bulbs, was the first organization to respond to the evolving needs of the replacement battery market. Our first store opened in 1988 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. We began franchising in 1992 and opened our first franchise-owned store in Fort Wayne, IN. The increasing demand for “specialty” and replacement batteries, combined with our reputation for solving battery problems, has led to our rapid success and expansion. In 2010, we refined the model of the all-battery franchise concept by adding light bulbs to our product line.
