    Pros

    Absolutely amazing management. They really care about you and will work with you to accommodate your schedule.

    Cons

    It seems like after Spartan bought the store I worked at, them trying to force our store to run their way caused some friction. But hey, what can ya do?

    Advice to Management

    Let successful stores runs things their ways. Also maybe let promising employees earlier management training.
