    Pros

    Benefits, on going training, and upper management. There is so much opportunity for growth although it can be stressful. The company invests in constant training for new processes and programs.

    Cons

    Pay, workload, cts metric. Great company but they are still figuring out a lot of processes which creates a greater workload for the store level employees. Salary should be more for the work you do.

    Pros

    Nice facility, and great co-workers. The management is very concerned about safety and actively puts in place and enforces measures that ensure that safety of employees. EEOC: they actually recruit and employ a diverse group of people.

    Cons

    Although they give an adequate amount of information about everything else they do not give enough notice when employees will need to work extended shift. Letting employees know the day before would ultimately be better than telling them the day of the extended shift.

    Pros

    Great Place to work!! Leadership sets a great example and walks the walk (even for charity as in the Light the Night Walk)

    Cons

    Vacation and benefits a little lacking and the company is growing, so there is an inordinate amount of pressure to perform especially outside of regular hours. But is a growing company. Not that flexible when it comes to working remotely - there is a need to be seen.
