    Pros

    Good room for advancement. There's more upside to this than downside. Bonuses plus a very generous salary is more than could be asked for.

    Cons

    Nothing really. I work for corporate not a franchisee so for me everything is all good. I dont have any con's.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really. Keep promoting from within and keep a keen eye out for the new up and coming management prospects because they're coming along now.

    Pros

    Interact with positive customers. Enhance your experience by learning at a quick rate.

    Cons

    May be assigned too much work to be able to leave on time. Unprofessional management is a possibility.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate tasks evenly so stress does not rely on one person. Teach every employee the basics of every line of jobs we do.

    Pros

    Benefits, customers, training, referral bonuses

    Cons

    High stress, pay raises depend on store's profits, not performance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't base raises on store sales, but on how hard the employee works for the good of the company. Starting wage should be based upon experience as well.
