    Pros

    It used to be for the flexible schedule that allowed for team members to have a life, but now the CEO and leadership team want to treat us like indentured servants, or serfs that work at their bequest rather than pay attention to our needs, or lives. If they don't lose tenured employees because of processes being implemented they will remain flat at best this year, or minimal growth, so good luck investors!

    Cons

    Fixed schedule for a year? Who knows everything they have planned each day of the year; oh and it includes fixed hours so there's no guessing they own you! Core value of Arthur T. In team member handbook states his recognition of family and its role, apparently between corporate greed, incompetent scheduling, and inability to read the first page of the handbook by anyone who came up with this lame idea, you now are stripped of any freedom you thought you had?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's an award for community service that no one will be able to receive in the store anymore because volunteering, and donating your time at the convenience of the the benefactor is disallowed due to scheduling. Many of team members can deal with IGNITE and other aspects related to daily ops regardless of if its skewed, but to take complete control of our lives ( anyone full time including management) shows how out of touch corporate is with ideals that they are able to implement with their families with all that money they make from continually buying stock or being granted stock cheap and selling high! (Look at yahoo under AAP ticker).
