    Pros

    My management team is great to work for and with.
    Pay reflects performance.

    Cons

    Have to work to many weekends away from the family. Public can wear u down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget we go to work for our families and when we can't ever see them because we are at work we can forget why we are there.

    Pros

    It's steady work and if you do your job and keep your head down you won't have too many problems.

    Cons

    You can't really have a second job. Your schedule has to remain open to accommodate your AZ schedule, which you will be told in so many words takes precedent over any of your other obligations. If you don't mind this then there is no problem. The pay even for managerial positions however isn't really high enough to justify this monopoly on your private life.

    Pros

    Some good employees, and some good customers.

    Cons

    Company puts people whom have stolen from them in positions of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the DM for the Alexandria area, and any manager he put in those positions. They were not properly trained and do not have the proper background to be in management.
