    Pros

    The company has endless opportunities to be the best but those at the top of the company do not have no clues about running a store.

    Cons

    This new ignite system they put in place is not helping us to dominate the industry we are in. we need new merchandise that car lovers a looking for. we need to have our stores more inviting. Stop managing from the main office our districy leaders are over worked with all the report and meetings and stores audit they have to complet. No wonder they do not spend no time in the stores .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Free the district leaders with less report and paper work. let them spend some time in the stores and mingle with the employees and customers for a full day without disruptions from the top leaders. Have our district leaders have a full day of fun in their stores to create a fun ambiance

    Pros

    The compensation can and will be very good providing the efforts are put in.

    Cons

    Upper management will not be consistent with staffing issues. Primarily with supporting terminations for violating company policies, also with hiring policy procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Document DM instructions.
