    Abusive corporate management

    Manager (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsGood Pay, Fun atmosphere at the store level. Good experience to take to the next job

    ConsI worked for a franchise (BNW) upper management very abusive. They set goals too high to achieve and then yell at you when you don't hit them (nobody hits them) They like an environment where everybody tattles on everybody, and everybody wants to get promoted at the expense of their buddies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey wont listen because they think they know everything. But there are much better motivators than fear. Build your people up and empower them with positive motivation and watch them perform. Then fire the ones that don't get it, don't make their life miserable so they will quit, and you wont have to pay umemployment. That is almost inhumane......

    Poor leadership at store level, poor judgment and choices made by franchise management, the Tampa,FL folks are great!

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Chattanooga, TN

    ProsYou get to meet interesting customers, and most are the salt-of-the-Earth Good Folks!

    ConsWithout training and support on the local level most can't succeed more than one year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease visit your franchise stores! Buddy's is a wonderful company, but the franchise stores are just there to build a customer base and sell to the highest bidder.(RentaCenter,Aarons,BestWay,etc)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was a positive work experience.

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThere is a lot of opportunity for advancement. This is due to, its all about how hard you work and how much you produce.

    ConsThe hours can be long. Everything is based on your numbers. The right numbers have to be produced or you work untill they are achieved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need some flexibility in goals and maintaing them. Just adjusting dates to cover yourself is not the way to do it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
