    Small amount of staff to manage, easy to navigate EA software, rewarding when speaking to customers and holiday bonuses.

    Work every holiday without extra compensation, Completely underpaid and not recognized for exceeding sales goals. Most are franchised so there is no HR department or communication with Corporate or insurance with benefits.Raises are not given annually.

    Pros

    Great starting platform for someone out of college

    Cons

    Office executives don't value their employees at all
    High corporate turnover rate-cant trust upper management
    Job security is a joke
    Office atmosphere is horrible
    Owner of company is horrible
    Treat everyone like they are below him

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit taking incentives from your staff
    you undervalue everyone-Turnover is not a good thing inn the corporate world
    No one stays over three years

    Pros

    Pros were in the interview everything was presented lovely. The owner gave lots of promises to give the store to me.

    Cons

    Everything that was promised was a complete lie. The owners are filthy. They were very cheap on ordering supplies that were needed for cleanliness, example, paper towels, soap, paper, ink. I was told not to use paper towels. Also gloves were "not to be wasted."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to the owners would be to get out of the business. Because the side work you are doing isn't helping you. It makes you look bad and people can see it.

    Pros

    It's a job. Review is for corporate HQ.

    Cons

    There is little to no room for taking ownership of your work and the satisfaction that may come with that since top management changes course on a whim and cannot stay focused on anything long term. No real organization or strategy. Constantly changing goals and tactics to increase sales. Since strategy changes course on a whim, there is no follow through and good ideas are never seen through. Excessive micromanagement.

    Office culture is stifling, top management relies on banal, inane, trite, cliched business sayings to "motivate" staff while simultaneously embarrassing people in front of co-workers. Top management can also be abusive.

    Only a few paid holidays and even top professionals are only allowed a total of 3 weeks off per year, this is all inclusive of sick AND vacation time. There is no work-life balance here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since problem seems to stem from THE TOP management and supported by upper management who have given up and are just there for the paycheck, there is no advice to give. It will not be heeded. That is why I and a couple dozen others have left over the past year.

    Really, the only advice is to potential new employees. Beware, you have been warned.

    Pros

    Flexibility and a somewhat fun place to work. Very easy job

    Cons

    Low pay, management constantly complains about how they are not making any money. the franchise takes a lot from their franchised stores

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell your employees they are not making any money because we get paid to much at 10 an hour
