Pros

It provides a great environment that fosters excellence and opportunity for growth. The management was all about trying to get the team to feel as one unified team achieving a common goal.

Cons

Sometimes employees are not empowered enough to make their own decisions and the process can take a long time to get things done for customers.

Advice to Management

Allow employees to make more decisions on their own

    Pros

    Employee discounts, accommodations and benefits are very good if you are full-time, quarterly bonuses if your store does really well. Fun environment to work in, 401k & they will pay for you to go to school!

    Cons

    They cut hours if the store does not have budget. You don't get your quarterly bonus if another department is holding you down. Depending on which store you are at, management can be uptight & biased.

  2. Great atmosphere where growing and learning from challenging situations takes you a step further in your development.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere where growing and learning from challenging situations takes you a step further in your development.

    Cons

    At times, there will be situations when you will deal with difficult, hard to please people. Don't let this get the best of you, in the end you are there to provide a great experience no matter what. So do your best and usually you are able to turn an escalated situation into a positive one.
