  1. Depending on the Franchise Owner(s), it can be awesome, or pure hell!

    Pros

    As a center manager for two facilities for many years, I can tell you that if the owners and ad-pool contributors can simply get the phone to ring, and if YOU do your dob and ASK for referrals, you can (or at least used to) make som serious income here. Our centers enjoyed a very high authorization rate, a high invoice count, and I worked with our vendors to allows us deeper discounts and better price points. If your R&R crew and builders can do the job, you can deliver the units and collect a good check. Corporate involvement was good while not being over-bearing, and the owner can make or break your center

    Cons

    Lets face it, you are dealing with angry depressed people every day that typically believe that you are out to rake them over the coals. If you don't have a strong stomach for customer service, and a strong sales background this job may not be for you.

    Advice to Management

    It may be vastly different now, as I was at my centers many years ago. (last year there was 2000)
    Advice to owners: Allow the center managers to do the job you hired them to do. If you want to control all aspects of the business, do not hire a professional sales and customer service manager.

    Pros

    Like meeting and talking with people every day. Enjoy not being in a cubicle of an office all day.

    Cons

    No benefits whatsoever. Requires driving your own vehicle upwards of 50+ miles every day for minimum of 5 days per week.

    Advice to Management

    Franchisees should be required to follow all labor laws for all employees, specifically thinking about 40 hour work week and pay for all time worked.

    Pros

    The work schedule afforded me an opportunity to be there for my sons and an adequate compensation to meet our family needs.

    Cons

    Advancement is non-existent unless you open your own store, which requires alot of money. Most franchisees offer no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Call me. I need a letter of recommendation. If the right person sees this you know who I am.

    Pros

    The benefit to being involved with AAMCO is the experience in the business. They do have many marketing suggestions.

    Cons

    The ideas they present usually cost the franchisee money up front and they do not increase the margins you work with. They are more concerned with increasing your Gross sales without consideration to the profit margins they create.

    Advice to Management

    consider some national advertising that would benefit all the franchisees.

    Pros

    The company has a strong organizational structure.
    The departments act as teams -- there's strong inter-departmental collaboration.
    The staff are supportive.

    Cons

    It is a corporation based on profit--which means at times $$ become more important than quality, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Give your average employees a voice.
