    Long hours, poor pay

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you're outgoing, you'll get a chance to network and meet all kinds of people and businesses. Due to minimal staffing, you will learn every aspect of the business.

    Cons

    Terrible hours - sometimes 12 hour days, 6 days a week. The regionals have the "you're salary, so I expect you to work 100 hours." mentality. Speaking of, the regionals in my area got there because of who they know, not ever have accomplishing anything - so don't expect them to understand or have your back. Get ready to chase accounts and show up at customer's houses at 8 o'clock at night to recover their merchandise - and get ready for angry, sometimes violent responses. People don't consider it a legit business, and treat you as seedy salesmen when they realize how much they actually pay for their items when taken to term. Considering the hours, the pay is terribly low and the bonus structure is extremely weak - don't fall for their "this store manager made 12k a quarter in bonuses." I wouldn't recommend this position to anyone unless it's a single person without a degree who wants to get into management in the worst way to beef up a resume.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to do the jobs that your GMs, CAMs, SMs, PTs do - walk in their shoes for a long while - not just a day, or one delivery - and see how you drive good people away from your business because you never learned how to treat people and think you're entitled because you lucked into a regional position.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay once you are promoted. Meet a lot of nice people.

    Cons

    No support from upper management. Whistle blower hotline is open to all employees. If they call it on you you will be fired no matter what proof you have that you were set up or that you did nothing wrong. You will be give a chance to explain but it will not matter. Firing 21 GM's in 1 year? The issue is always the GM and never the lack of help they are given. Very poor training. Very sink or swim company.

    Advice to Management

    Regionals and divisional staff really need to offer some help to their staff. This company will fail because if you. People are very untrusting of you. You cannot afford to continue to not pay attention to your staffs and manage by emails.
