Learned a lot, but burnout and turnover rate is high.

Area Manager (Current Employee) Hebron, KY

Pros1. Amazing company, with strong innovative CEO.
2. Company is positioned for long-term growth and uses stock options to help you have ownership with the company
3. Leadership opportunities are available everywhere and you will be surrounded by talented people
4. Advancement opportunities are also based entirely on merit so office politics is very downplayed

Cons1. In operations where I was, work-life balance is not a priority. Night and weekend shifts certainly don't help and there seems to be no set formula in determining if you get the desirable or undesirable shifts
2. During peak season you will work in excess of 80+ a week which is very challenging, but the hardest part is working on holidays which will inevitable impact personal and social life
3. Training and retention is not the biggest priority currently with the company: There is almost 0 technical training for the job before you start working and many people seem to burnout due to the lack of structure

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer better work-life balance to managers by having total transparency when assigning them to undesirable shits. Promote more talent from within instead of trying to fill positions as quickly as possible with external hires. Invest more resources in comprehensive training that will allow for a more reasonable learning curve.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
